Dr. Rastetter is originally from Erie, PA. He attended the University of Dayton for his undergraduate Bachelor of Science. He went to medical school at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and stayed in Chicago for residency training at West Suburban Hospital. After residency training, he completed a fellowship in Maternal and Child Health in Chicago, where he was trained in high risk and surgical obstetrics, as well as high risk newborn care. After training, he worked at PCC Community Wellness Center and FQHC in Chicago, where he became a site medical director.

Clinical Interests

All of my training and work has been in underserved and marginalized communities where I have a particular interest in how the social determinants of health affect the health of individuals and the community. I continue to practice and enjoy full scope family medicine, including obstetrics, pediatrics and inpatient/outpatient adult medicine. I am excited to work with residents and be in a directorship role in the OSU Family Medicine Residency Program, thinking of how to recruit, train and retain physicians to work for the urban poor.
