In 1973, Dr. Thomas Heggen began to establish the foundation of his career in medicine. As an undergraduate student, he pursued a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Biomedical and Medical Engineering at ISU. This accomplishment helped the future doctor to grasp his initial understanding on medical practices and procedures, as well as medicine as a whole. Immediately following the completion of his Bachelor’s degree, Heggen entered the Carver College of Medicine to pursue his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), which he received in 1983. During his studies, he completed a residency through the Spectrum Health network.
In December of 1997, Dr. Thomas Heggen contributed to “An Evaluation of The Specificity, Validity and Reliability of Jumping Tests.” This study observed the abilities and limitations of the human body in terms of mobility. Seventeen male subjects performed a variety of specific jumping tests. The study’s findings established a stark difference in results depending on the specific jump type used. Essentially, each subject’s jumping ability relied entirely upon the method of execution. This speaks volumes to Dr. Thomas Heggen’s belief in integrative medicine, or the consideration of various aspects when evaluating a condition.
