Jonathan S. Aubry, MD
My name is Jonathan Aubry and I grew up in the town of Sandwich, a small town in northern Illinois. It was in high school that I decided I wanted to become a physician, due to the balance of continuing to study science, coupled with the ability to help others by improving their health. High school was also the place that I met my wife Libby, who has been by my side ever since while pursuing a career as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. For my undergraduate studies, I attended Benedictine University in Lisle, IL. After taking a year off to apply to medical school, Libby and I had the opportunity to work and live in Yellowstone National Park prior to starting our graduate studies in the fall. After that amazing summer, I came back to the University of Illinois College of Medicine-Rockford for my medical training.
Growing up in a small town, I was exposed to family medicine from the start. A family doctor delivered me, then continued to care for me and the rest of my family for most of my childhood. This is what I knew about medicine, so from the start I thought rural family medicine was the right path for me. Medical school confirmed this feeling, and thus led me to pursue residency training at Memorial Hospital. From the moment I began learning about the program and meeting people here, I knew Memorial would provide the broad spectrum training for me to become an excellent family physician. The interview day and second look days confirmed this feeling, and my wife and I were ecstatic to match in South Bend. Currently, I have interests that include sports medicine, obstetrics, and advanced procedures such as colonoscopy.
Outside of medicine, my wife and I love to travel and explore as much as possible. We enjoy doing outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, and biking as well. I enjoy household projects, fixings things with my hands, and rooting for my favorites sports teams, including the Fighting Illini and Fighting Irish.
