Nigel Hogan is originally from Peterborough, Ontario.  He attended Defiance College majoring in Molecular Biology before attending Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.  He is passionate about many things in medicine, but especially international medicine/medical missions!  Outside of medicine, he is passionate about his wife and new baby boy!  He is perfectly content to spend his free time with her...even if it means walking through Joann Fabrics for a several hours at a time. But when he’s not doing that, Nigel loves being outdoors (canoeing, hiking, or just walking). The ocean is amazing. Hockey is the best sport to ever exist (he’s from Canada). He loves music and plays a random assortment of instruments. However, he is MOST passionate about his faith and living it out by serving people in need -- his local Bible study does lots of outreach: serving the homeless in our area by providing food, clothes, prayer etc. and EVERY time he’s able to get involved, he feels blessed. Last but not least, spending time with his family is a great outlet for him – Nigel has six brothers and sisters (i.e. 6 best friends)!  Nigel is planning to work with his dad (family doc) in rural NW Ohio for a few years, and then he hopes to transition to medical missions full-time!  Nigel chose Grant because he felt the training was exceptional.  It felt like family from the very first time he visited.  He is confident he will get full spectrum training in a close-knit environment.
