From the pages of Medicine at Michigan magazine: Family Practice

In the article, “Family Practice,” from the Summer 2017 issue of Medicine at Michigan magazine, recent Medical School graduate Katie Goldrath writes:

“During my medical school journey, I learned that I was actually the fourth generation of my family to be infected by both the medicine and U-M bugs, starting with my great-grandfather, Morris Bachman (M.D. 1925); my grandfather, Milton Goldrath (M.D. 1951); three great-uncles, Robert Goldman (M.D. 1956, Residency 1959), Milton Nathanson (M.D. 1960) and Harvey Komorn (M.D. 1961); and my father, David Goldrath (M.D. 1983). In homage of my family’s deep roots in the Medical School, I sought to explore the evolution of life as a medical student from my family’s perspective through archival research and personal interviews.”
