Aaron Frey, MD
My name is Christopher Brubaker and I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI. I attended Grand Valley State University for my undergraduate degree in biomedical science. During my time at Grand Valley, I had the fantastic opportunity to spend a year of my education at a small university on the Eastern coast of Australia, just north of Brisbane. From there I went to medical school at St. George's University and completed my clinical training in Detroit.
I am excited to be a part of the FWMEP. There really is no other program that comes close to all the opportunities that I will have at each of the hospitals. The time and energy the faculty and staff put forth during my interview left me confident about my decision. In addition to receiving training in full spectrum family medicine, my interests in include sports medicine and emergency medicine.
In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities like camping, boating, fishing, running, snowboarding and many, many others. Basically, anything that gets me outside and keeps me active, I love to do. Other activities I enjoy are traveling, watching movies and eating at new and unique restaurants. Fortunately for me, my wife shares my same interests and we have gone on many adventures together and look forward to having more in Fort Wayne!
Alicia Julovich, MD
Hello, my name is Aaron Frey. I was born and raised in Seymour, IN and after graduating from high school I attended Indiana University, originally as a music major but eventually receiving my general studies degree. During my time at Indiana University I had the opportunity to go on a few mission trips to Haiti. It was on these trips that I discovered my love for medicine. After graduating from Indiana University I attended A.T. Still University in Kirksville, MO and received my Masters of Biomedical Sciences. Following my time in Kirksville, I attended Ross University in Dominica, West Indies for my medical training. During my time with Ross University, I had the opportunity to do a one-month rotation at FWMEP. I immediately loved the program and knew it is where I wanted to continue my career.
While in my clinical rotations I found that I enjoyed many aspects of medicine. Moving forward I anticipate treating a wide variety of patients with special interest in emergency medicine and sports medicine.
In my free time I enjoy playing the piano, guitar and bass. I am also an aviation enthusiast and can be found at the local airport on a nice day. Being the youngest of four boys, I am very close with my family and am happy to be in the same state as them again after being away for six years of schooling
Mubeen Khan, MD
Hi, my name is Alicia Julovich. I was born and raised in the Midwest. I am proud to call myself Hoosier and I received my B.S. degree in Biology from Indiana University Northwest. Between undergraduate degree and medical school, I spent 2 years teaching Biology and Microbiology Laboratory at IUN. I then attended medical school at Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica.
I was in search of a program that offered full-spectrum family medicine with lots of obstetrics and procedures, and Fort Wayne was the best choice for me. It also helps that the program is very close to home and look forward to my family visiting as often as possible.
In my free time, I enjoy getting together with friends and family. I love hosting parties, baking, trying out new cuisine, painting, playing my guitar, and traveling. I look forward to starting my new adventure in Fort Wayne!
Evan Kroh, MD
Hello! My name is Mubeen Khan, and I am from Wheeling, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago. I am a huge fan of the Midwest! Even after attending Saba University School of Medicine and completing my clinical clerkships all across the country, the Midwest still had my heart. I was fortunate enough to complete my family medicine clerkship here in Fort Wayne where I personally witnessed the exceptional staff, teaching, and friendly residents. It was an obvious choice to return to Fort Wayne for my residency!
Some of my hobbies include traveling, baking, shopping, dining out, and watching sports. Since I've been back and forth across the USA, I hope to travel internationally a bit now. As far as sports, I am a huge Chicago sports fan, so I will have to work on allotting some space in my heart for rival Indiana teams! ;)
Some of my interests in family medicine that I am excited to explore include women's health, pediatrics, and chronic care management. I personally believe educated patients result in healthy patients! I hope to encourage my patients to stay informed and be THE expert on their personal health. Needless to say, I am looking forward to this next chapter and all the memories it will bring
Chase Livingston, DO
It's good to be home! I am honored and thrilled to be in Fort Wayne for my medical training. After growing up on the southwest side, I moved far away to attend Pitzer College in southern California to study basic sciences in preparation for a career in medicine. My next stop was Seattle, WA where I spent close to five years in a research lab helping to develop a better way to diagnose cancer. The following four years took me to Grenada and Detroit for medical school, and now I'm back to learn family medicine with the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program.
Aside from medicine, I love: my wife, Sherry, Colts/Hoosier basketball victories, family vacations, potent coffee, casual social functions, dog walks, traveling to far-flung places, pick-up soccer games, hiking mountain trails, clean healthy eating, fireworks shows and sci-fi movies… roughly in that order.
My goal as a physician is to competently care for anyone who walks through my doors. I chose family medicine because my interests are varied, but above all I'm interested in empowering my patients with the knowledge and tools to better care for themselves. I see health as a joint endeavor and will always do what I can to help reach that goal. I am excited for the opportunity to learn with FWMEP. Their full spectrum program will develop in me the ability to treat the patient as a whole person, to see the countless connections throughout their lives, to instill good habits and to correct bad ones when appropriate and to treat individuals and families in the years ahead.
David Murphy, DO
Hi! My name is Chase Livingston and I grew up in Yakima, an agricultural town in central Washington State. I received a Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering from Washington State University in Pullman, WA. From there, I attended Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences for medical school.
Prior to starting residency, I married the love of my life and high school sweetheart, Paige. Having never lived outside of the northwest, we are both very excited to be moving to Fort Wayne and to be starting a new adventure together.
The FWMEP stood out to me because it has all of the key features I was looking for in a family medicine residency program. It is dually accredited and unopposed with a strong emphasis in obstetrics and procedures. I also felt at home when I rotated with the program during my fourth year of medical school and knew right away that this was the place for me. I couldn't ask to train with better faculty, staff, and fellow residents.
In my free time, I love to stay active and I am an avid sports fan. Growing up in the northwest, I of course also enjoy hunting, fishing, skiing, and hiking when I have the time.
Joe Perkins, DO
Hello! My name is David Murphy. I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I grew up playing the saxophone and running track. After graduating high school I moved to Utah to attend Brigham Young University, where I continued to run collegiate track and developed a strong interest in medicine. During my college experience, I spent two years in Hawaii serving a mission for my church. It was on my mission where I truly learned how to love others through dedicated service.
Before attending medical school I started a business and accomplished my goal of running in the Boston Marathon. I also met my beautiful wife, Shawna, who grew up in Seattle. Shortly after we were married, we moved back to the East Coast to attend medical school at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. During medical school we were blessed to start our family. Together as a family we enjoy exercising, watching movies, and cooking (only because we love eating!).
We are excited to be living in Fort Wayne! After thoroughly exploring and interviewing with programs across the nation, we fell in love with Fort Wayne and the residency program here. From the caring community, to the lush natural resources, it was an ideal place. We are looking forward to contributing to the elite cutting edge level of healthcare provided in Fort Wayne.
I am passionate about preventative health. My goal is to encourage and support my patients as they strive to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Other interests in medicine include sports medicine, addiction medicine and obstetric care. I am very happy to be serving here as part of Fort Wayne Family Medicine!
Nick Seman, DO
Hi! I grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and completed my undergraduate studies in economics at Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne. After a short career working in economics and then statistics, I realized medicine was my true calling. I completed the medical school pre-requisites at IUPUI in Indianapolis, IN and then headed to Chicago to attend medical school at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am excited to return home for the next stage of my training after an exciting four years in Chicago.
After spending a month rotating with the FWMEP I knew it was my top choice for residency. I immediately felt at home with the residents, faculty and staff. I loved the community based aspect of the program and ability to pursue my interests. I like the broad spectrum of family medicine, particularly preventive health, nutrition and sports medicine.
My interests outside of medicine include spending time with family and friends, sports, running, reading, trying new restaurants and traveling.
John Tan, MD
Hi, my name is Nick Seman and I grew up in the rural town of Howe, Indiana. I attended Manchester University (Manchester College at that time) for my undergraduate, majoring in biology/chemistry and minoring in psychology. I then moved down to Pikeville, Kentucky for medical school at the University of Pikeville – Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. After completing my second year I married my high school sweetheart, and moved to Bay City, Michigan for my clinical training.
My wife is also a graduate of Manchester University, and has worked at both Zimmer and Dow over the last few years. We have one dog, Tesla, a cockapoo that we treat better than ourselves.
In my down time I enjoy playing sports, bicycling, running, reading, watching movies, catching up on manga and anime, playing video games, and hanging out with friends. As long as I'm around friends I can have fun doing anything. I am a strong supporter of the Chicago Cubs, and love going to Wrigley field to watch the opposing team dominate more often than not. I also enjoy following Manchester United soccer and the Indianapolis Colts.
I was encouraged to apply to the Fort Wayne program by my family doctor, a graduate of the program herself. I cannot thank her enough! From the dinner the night before the interview until the minute I left the next day, I was completely blown away by the quality of the program, faculty, and residents. I knew this was the perfect fit for me to push myself in order to become the best doctor possible, and was beyond excited when the results of the matched were released.
I am very excited to be a part of such an amazing program! My wife and I are thrilled to make Fort Wayne our home!
Hello! My name is Chung Ning Tan but I go by John. I was born in Taiwan and grew up in Indonesia. I moved to Indiana when I was 18 for undergraduate studies and attended Huntington University to receive my B.A. in Biology. After college, I married the love of my life, Megan. Then I started working at Lutheran ER for 2 years. It was there that I solidified by desire to become a physician. I attended Indiana University School of Medicine and was enrolled in the Rural Health track in Terre Haute for 4 years.
The past four years went by fast. During this time, we welcomed a new addition to our family, Elias, who brings us so much joy. We are so excited that we are coming back to Fort Wayne as a family, a place that was like a home to us already. I chose Fort Wayne because I wanted to pursue full-spectrum training that will prepare me to go anywhere in the world and serve. It truly is such a privilege to be trained at the place where I first embarked on this journey.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy playing sports such as tennis, basketball, and any other team sports. When our son is finally put to bed at night, my wife and I usually enjoy our time watching movies and TV shows.
