Get to Know Schneck’s Newest Pediatrician Dr. Courtney Glos
July 01, 2019
Dr. Glos is a pediatrician and joins Schneck Pediatrics with Dr. Richard De Vuyst. She received her medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City, Iowa.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Portage, Indiana. In high school, I was a member of the National Honor Society and Latin Club and was a Science Olympiad. I also played softball and volunteered with the special education department. In college, I continued my volunteer work with the Indianapolis Children's Museum. I also did research in synthetic organic chemistry and taught the laboratory section of organic chemistry.

Please tell us about your family. My husband Andy is a geography lecturer at Indiana University. Our daughter Wendy is a professional “threenager” and part time puddle jumper!

What hobbies do you enjoy? I like to read and participate in book clubs. I also enjoy working out and fitness activities and, of course, jumping in puddles with Wendy!

Where would you most like to visit? I would love to travel to Scotland!

When did you know you wanted to be a physician? I actually went to medical school to be a forensic pathologist, which I decided to do when I was in high school. I knew pediatrics was the profession for me during my clerkship days. The pediatric clerkship days gave me so much energy and I often woke up prior to my alarm because I was so excited for the day!

What was your favorite part of Residency? In my personal life, the birth of my daughter at the beginning of my intern year.  In my professional life, being honored as the Resident/Fellow of the Year by the medical students at University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. This is a campus-wide award across all residency and fellowship programs. 

What is one of your most memorable patient stories? My most memorable patient is the one who nominated me for my Red Shoe Award while I was finishing medical school at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis. I learned so much about patient advocacy and communication. By bringing to light the aspects of medicine I valued most, this patient taught me that primary care is my passion. 

What do you like most about practicing medicine? I love getting to know my families and watching my patients grow up. 

Why did you decide to join Schneck Medical Center? When I talked to the Schneck physician recruiter on the telephone, I immediately felt like I was talking to an old friend (even though we didn't know each other). I had the same feeling of a work family when I met everyone in person. The proximity to my husband's job, with the small community feel I was looking for in a practice, just made Schneck an easy choice for our family.  

Dr. Glos begins practice on August 1, 2019. To make an appointment with Schneck Pediatrics, call 812-523-7466.
