David T. Furman, Jr., DO
Hello! My name is David Furman, and I look forward to returning to my hometown of Fort Wayne for residency training. I obtained my undergraduate degree from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana where I also spent time working as an EMT. Upon completion I got married to my wonderful wife and we moved up to Appleton, Wisconsin where I worked as Campus Life administrator and Pharmacy Technician. We then returned to Indiana where I attended Ball State University for my Master's degree in Physiology. After teaching physiology and anatomy as adjunct faculty, my wife and I moved down to Spartanburg, South Carolina where I attended the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine – Carolinas Campus.

Choosing to move back to Fort Wayne for my Family Medicine training was the perfect choice. I looked all over the country for a community-based, unopposed, dually accredited program and was happily surprised to find that the FWMEP was exactly what I was looking for 'in my own backyard!' I have been continuously impressed with the friendly, supportive environment that is created and know that this program will provide the continued training to hone my skills as well-rounded family physician.

Outside of medicine, I love spending time with my wife and son. We enjoy traveling, eating great food, attending local festivals and watching the Colts win!

Elizabeth Hollingsworth, MD
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Hollingsworth. My friends call me Liza. I was born in Fort Wayne, lived all over the eastern half of the country, and returned to Fort Wayne to raise my family 15 years ago. I have four daughters ranging in age from 19 to 7. The oldest is currently attending Indiana University in Bloomington.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree, with a major in Nursing. After a short time working as an emergency room nurse, I went on to pursue my Medical Degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

In my free time I enjoy watching my daughters compete in show choir and diving. As a family, we love being outside and going to the lake, watching college football and basketball, cooking and baking. My family and I are thrilled to be able to continue calling Fort Wayne our home!

Justin Sean Johnson, MD
My name is Justin Johnson and I grew up in Colorado and in Illinois. After high school I joined the Army, which gave me the skills to do network application programming and user interface for an electronics manufacturing company. I left that job and decided to change careers into medical science research, earning my bachelor's degree in Biology from Purdue University. I then earned my combined MD and PhD degrees at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, successfully defending my doctoral thesis on a novel action of a critical transcription factor specific to the pancreatic beta cell.

My motivation for medicine and science is to improve the lives of patients through research, and the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program also values the implementation of medical care guided by empirical evidence to affect patients' lives for the better. The program's affiliation with the Indiana University School of Medicine also allows me to retain academic connections and opportunities, while still focusing on providing extraordinary patient care in a community setting.

In my spare time I like to visit my extended family, but I rarely get to see them all since I have 23 siblings and 31 nieces and nephews. I'm an occasional runner and mountain biker, but when I get a chance I prefer to go hiking, camping and off-roading. I brew my own beer, ferment wine, bake bread, and pickle vegetables.

Ahmad S. Khatri, MD
Hello, my name is Ahmad Shahid Khatri. I grew up in Cincinnati, OH and attended the University of Akron, the University of Cincinnati, and then Saba University School of Medicine on the beautiful Caribbean island of Saba.

When I came to Fort Wayne as a medical student for my Family Medicine rotation, I had no idea that the experience would change my life forever. The sense of community within the rapidly growing city, the friendliness and support from the residents, the caring attitude of the highly accomplished faculty, and the relationships I developed with the residency/medical student education personnel at FWMEP made Fort Wayne the place I wanted to train and develop as a new physician.

Otherwise, I am a tortured Cincinnati Bengals fan that has remained loyal to the team despite the yearly heartbreak. I also enjoy drawing, stand up comedy, documentaries, playing basketball, fantasy football, billiards, and almost anything outside when the weather is warm.

Anna Kathleen Menze, DO
Hi! My name is Anna Menze, and I am so glad to be coming home to Fort Wayne. I attended Purdue University, West Lafayette for my Bachelors where I majored in health science with a public health concentration and a biology minor. As I have a strong interest in preventative health, I continued my education at Purdue and earned my Masters of Public Health. I attended medical school at Lincoln Memorial University- DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, Tennessee.

When I did my sub-internship at FWMEP, I knew immediately that this is where I wanted to be! The camaraderie between residents, the diverse patient population, the unopposed program, and the opportunity to learn full spectrum care are second to none.

When I have free time, I love spending time outside, going to our family lake house on Lake Gage, spending time with family and friends, going on weekend trips, cooking and baking for family and friends, and going on spontaneous adventures.

I could not be more excited for the new adventures and opportunities that training at FWMEP will provide.

Zheng Milgrom, MD
Hi everybody! My name is Olivia Milgrom. I grew up in Liuzhou, China, a beautiful place known for its Karst topography and spicy snail noodles. While I first was interested in treating cancers, through my research I found that the key was good primary care and prevention. After receiving my M.D. from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, I moved to my new hometown, Indianapolis, to pursue my next step in training.

I am totally thrilled to join FWMEP. I had already heard a lot of great things about this program, and after visiting, I was very impressed by its positive and supportive environment. I know the program will help me become the kind of physician I want to be! The unopposed setting also suits my broad interest in medicine. I am very excited to be part of such a big, wonderful family!

I like to spend time working out, listening to music and singing karaoke, and spending time with my husband. I also love traveling, photography, and playing sports, especially basketball. I am a big fan of Sichuan and Thai cuisine, and I enjoy cooking all sorts of spicy foods.

I graduated from Prairie View A&M University with a degree in Biology and went on to pursue a Master of Health Administration degree at Texas A&M University.

Eric A. Shoemaker, DO
Hi, my name is Eric Shoemaker, and I am a proud Fort Wayne native. I grew up in the great city of Fort Wayne until I went to Butler University in Indianapolis for college. There I majored in Chemistry with a minor in Biology and Spanish. After undergrad, my goal of becoming a physician took me to the University of Pikeville- Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. I spent my first two years down in Kentucky and was able to move back to Fort Wayne for my clinical rotations in my third and fourth year of school.

It is a dream come true to be back and practicing as a new physician in my hometown. I am even more excited to be a part of FWMEP, a program that has always welcomed me and made me feel like I belonged. The opportunities FWMEP provides are incomparable; I am thrilled to be a part of a program where I can explore my interested in obstetrics, procedures, community health, and health education.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. I am a huge fan of being in the outdoors, whether that includes hiking, biking, or kayaking, and exploring Fort Wayne.

Justin Weirich, DO
Hi! I am a native of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. I've always known I wanted to do family medicine. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Mary Washington where I majored in Chemistry and played four years of varsity soccer. I then graduated from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine.

I was drawn to Fort Wayne for a number of reasons. After auditioning at FWMEP, it became very evident that this program had a lot to offer. I loved that the curriculum is geared toward traditional family medicine where doctors not only have an outpatient practice, but a large inpatient and OB role as well. Another big draw was the chance to work unopposed in all rotations at three excellent hospitals in Fort Wayne. The icing on the cake was certainly the people; the residents and faculty are not only fantastic clinicians and teachers, but were welcoming, kind, and easy to work with during my audition and interview process. I'm excited and honored to be a part of the FWMEP family.

Outside of my passion for medicine, I enjoy just about any sport but especially love soccer, golf, tennis and basketball. I also enjoy bow hunting, wood working, and gardening.
