Aditya Ahlawat, MD

Having grown up in Montreal, Canada I am by law required to love hockey and thus do so with great fervor. I moved to Massachusetts in 2003 to pursue an undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry at Assumption College. After four memorable years there I moved to Maryland and spent a year working at the National Institutes of Health before matriculating to Ross University School of Medicine. I’d be lying if I said I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, but once I found my true calling, I have never looked back and am forever grateful.

I didn’t choose family medicine as much as it chose me. Throughout my clinical rotations I found myself at ease and comfortable dealing with patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I absolutely appreciate the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and found that family medicine offered me the perfect opportunity to blend both healing and counseling when approaching patient care. I couldn’t be more thrilled about spending the next three years training at FWMEP as it has the ideal formula for producing competent and compassionate physicians.

My passions include soccer (huge Manchester United fan), Doritos, penny loafers and Joseph-Gordon Levitt movies. My favorite book is “The Catcher in the Rye” and the all-time greatest TV show to ever air is “The Wonder Years.”

Joshua A. Dettinger, MD

I was born in California and grew up in a small town in Utah.  I attended Brigham Young University for my undergraduate education, where I met and married the love of my life, Kelly.  We had our first baby shortly before I graduated.  Between graduation and medical school I stayed home with my son for six months while my wife taught elementary school and now have a greater appreciation for her and all other stay at home mothers!  We traveled to Dominica, a small island in the Caribbean, to attend Ross University School of Medicine.  We then moved to Saginaw, Michigan to do my clinical years and were blessed with two daughters during our time there.

I researched most every family medicine program in the country looking for programs that would be a good fit for me and my family.  I was drawn to the program at Fort Wayne because it is an unopposed program with extensive procedural training.  I did an elective rotation there during my fourth year of medical school and quickly fell in love with the program and the city.  The residents and faculty were great to work with and I saw firsthand how many opportunities they had to extend their learning and tailor it to the areas they were interested in.  Also, Fort Wayne is a large enough city to have nice restaurants and things to do with our family, but small enough to avoid commutes and traffic.  We are excited to raise our family here for the next few years.      

Outside of medicine my favorite pastime is playing tee-ball in the backyard with my son.  I also love to read, especially crime novels, and am currently working my way through the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.  If given the chance, I will never turn down a pickup game of soccer, basketball, or any other sport I can play without completely embarrassing myself, and maybe even some of those.

Sebastian Harris, MD

Hello! I'm a nice guy from humble beginnings in a small, rural town in western Oklahoma called Burns Flat. After high school, I graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in Chemistry, and I went on to Oklahoma State University and completed a M.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. At the midpoint of my postgraduate work, I shifted gears and decided to focus on a career in clinical medicine. I attended medical school at the University of Oklahoma. During my core clerkship rotations, I discovered my calling to work as a general practitioner with the desire to eventually work in a rural or sub rural area.
 
After deciding to pursue a family medicine residency, I scoured the nation for the best program that met my interests including a very comprehensive curriculum, a plethora of procedural opportunities, and a program invested with ample educational resources and strong, experienced faculty. I interviewed all over the country at close to 20 Family Medicine Residency programs in total.  I had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and assessed many great programs. However one program in all my encounters rose above the rest and that is the Fort Wayne Family Medicine Residency program.  I felt that I connected on a personal level with many of the residents and faculty, and I was inspired by the rapid development and national recognition they have garnered. I am deeply honored to have matched to this program, and I also look forward to enjoying the many wonderful experiences Fort Wayne, Indiana has to offer!
 
In my free time I like to eat, sleep, and repeat ;-) haha. I also like playing with cats/dogs, bowling, attending musicals and live theater, and custom building/tweaking/overclocking my personal computer.

Beau Mathew Links, DO

Hello, my name is Beau Links and I’m from Huber Heights, Ohio. I completed my undergraduate education at Wright State University and then completed medical school at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. After two years of college I joined the Marine Corps Reserves and served as an infantryman for 5 years. I was deployed to Iraq in 2005, wounded, and decided to make the most of my second chance at life and pursue a career in osteopathic medicine. I believe health comes from superior nutrition and exercise and look forward to continuing my education in those fields.

I have a wife, Courtney, who is a stay at home mom to our three wonderful children: Grace, Henry, and Benjamin.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, exercising, shooting firearms, reading, and playing chess.

Life is full of forks in the road, and I’m glad the path I’ve chosen has led me to Fort Wayne. I wanted an unopposed community based program that offered significant procedural and obstetrical training while also providing a full spectrum family medicine experience. FWMEP satisfied these requirements and more. The friendliness of the residents, professionalism of the program directors and recruitment coordinators, and abundance of family friendly activities in the area made Fort Wayne stand above the rest.

Jessica Morse, DO

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I am most recently from Virginia, where I went to the Via College of Osteopathic Medicine. While there, I met a sweet and funny classmate with a giant yellow cardboard buffalo on his desk. I stole his buffalo, and he stole my heart. We got married after our third year of med school, and are excited to train together in Fort Wayne as we prepare for a career in family medicine and global health.

Before medical school, I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to adults through a family literacy program. Standing next to one of my students (who had learned to read for the first time through my class) on her naturalization swearing-in ceremony day was one of the proudest moments of my life!

Prior to teaching and college at Salem College in North Carolina, I grew up in Florida, but lived in many other places, and am fond of saying, "Home is where my pillow is currently located!"

I'm fluent in Spanish, speak very poor Swahili, and love to travel abroad. I've spent time in Honduras, Guatemala, Bolivia, and Tanzania. I have a huge heart for other cultures and peoples, and my interests in medicine include pediatrics, OB, and global health. We are excited to train at Fort Wayne's robust family medicine program and to truly take care of folks from "womb to tomb".

When I am not wearing my white coat, I love to read, spend time with my fun family, spearhead crazy hikes, worship Jesus, try out new recipes on unsuspecting friends, and go to church. My notable accomplishments are swimming with alligators and making prize-winning scones.

Stephen Morse, DO

I was born in Chiang Mai, Thailand, to two missionary doctors (both D.O’s) but grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, from age 6 through the end of high school.  I majored in chemistry and minored in music at Milligan College in Johnson City, TN, and then went down the road for med school at the Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Blacksburg, VA.  That’s where I met my wife, Jessica, whom I finally convinced to date me after sitting behind her in class for two years and almost giving up all hope.  We got married at the end of third year and were able to do all of our 4th year travelling together as Mr. and Mrs. Morse before couples’ matching at Fort Wayne where we will now be the Drs. Morse.  We’ve been blessed with the godly examples of many older married couples and we hope to, by God’s grace, emulate them in our own marriage and someday our parenting as well. 

I have travelled extensively (Thailand, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, the Caribbean, Honduras, Mexico, Kenya and Tanzania).  I am also fluent in Spanish and know enough Swahili to haggle for avocados (although it could be said I know just enough Swahili to be dangerous in regards to hair grooming and livestock…) and I’m hoping to pick up some Burmese during my time in Fort Wayne.  Jess and I both did med school rotations in Honduras and Tanzania and our long-term goals are to eventually put down roots in a rural, 3rd world community and help bring total health (both physical and spiritual well-being) to that area.  I’m excited about the strong, well rounded training that Fort Wayne offers from the Labor & Delivery ward to the office to inpatient medicine.  I’m also looking forward to the long-term relationships with patients from all walks of life. 

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, photography and spending time with our church family.  I love playing the piano and guitar as well as writing music. I also started a capella groups in undergrad and med school (the SOAP Notes, as we’re known at VCOM).

Andrew J. Mullally, MD

Hi, my name is Andrew Mullally and I grew up in Jeddo, Michigan, a small town just north of Port Huron in the “thumb” of Michigan.  I graduated from Ave Maria University near Naples, Florida with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry.  From there I came back up north to attend the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine for medical school.  After my first year, I married my college sweetheart and was happy to have her join me up in Michigan, as she is originally from Texas.

The last two years we have spent in Midland, Michigan for my clinical training.  We have one 19-month-old son, Dominic, and we are expecting our second son, Nicholas, in July!  We are both very excited to have graduated this past May, as my wife has just completed her MBA, and studying for school has been a major part of all of our years together.

We are thrilled to be in Fort Wayne as we were immediately drawn to the medical education opportunities, especially in procedural training, and were impressed by the quality of the faculty and residents.  Both of us felt right at home the first time we visited Fort Wayne and look forward to joining the community.

In what little free time we have, we enjoy spending time as a family and traveling.  Apart from that, I have a large range of interests including working outdoors, playing sports, and following politics.  I also am always up for a game of cards, pool, or Scrabble.

I am so excited to be a part of Fort Wayne Medical Education Program, and I know that I am going to enjoy my time here!

Hi! My name is Amirummul but I go by Ummul for short. I was born and raised in Maryland. I went to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where I majored in Anthropology and then attended American University of Antigua for medical school.

During my last two years of medical school I had the opportunity to travel and live in various places for my clerkships. It was during this time I grew to love the Midwest, which eventually led me to Fort Wayne.

In my free time I enjoy watching sports, reading, traveling, and most importantly, eating. I look forward to becoming a part of the Fort Wayne Medical Education family.

Hi!  My name is Jacklyn Oakley, but please call me Jackie.  I am from a small town near Evansville, IN.  I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Southern Indiana in biology.  I attended Indiana University School of Medicine.  My first two years were completed in Evansville near my family.  I married my best friend, Nathan, during the second year of medical school.  Then, our clinical years were completed in Indianapolis, IN.  We are so thrilled to have couple’s matched into the Fort Wayne Family Medicine Residency.

We both wanted a full-spectrum family medicine program with plenty of obstetrics and procedures, and Fort Wayne was the best fit for us.  It was very important that the program was unopposed.  We are both looking forward to the adventure that Fort Wayne brings us! 

In my free time, I enjoy visiting with family and friends.  Nathan and I enjoy hiking and canoeing/kayaking together.  We both like watching movies, NCIS, and the Big Bang Theory.
