Residents Jonathan Bingham, DO Hello! My name is Jonathan Bingham. I have been a Missourian for my entire life, born and raised in Kansas City. I decided that I wanted a change in scenery, so I attended the University of Missouri – Columbia for my undergraduate education. I took a year off between undergrad and medical school, and worked at a local pharmaceutical company in Columbia as an analytical chemist. Following this, I moved up to Kirksville to attend medical school at A.T. Still University. During medical school, I took an additional year for a predoctoral fellowship to receive advanced training in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.My wife and I have been married for two years and have one 3-year-old daughter who is the light of our lives! My free time is primarily spent being bossed around by my daughter! Other than being her personal assistant, I enjoy fishing, grilling, working on cars, playing with my dog, and watching/playing sports of all kinds.Coming from a very underserved urban area, I was able to see both sides of the coin from a young age. I was able to understand why people were unable to seek medical care, but I also saw the effects the lack of health care had on these same people. This, more than anything, drove me in my pursuit of becoming a family medicine physician. I know this career will put me in the best position to help people who come from similar circumstances as myself. I feel that CoxHealth Family Medicine Residency is built to train physicians in a manner congruent with the skills I will need to accomplish my overall goal. My family and I could not be happier with our choice!
