Nightcrawler’s Medical Training

 Has it ever been mentioned where Kurt got his medical training? It hasn’t been brought up in a few decades as far as I know. Feel free to enlighten me! :D

 For now, I figure he could have studied (unofficially) from a doctor who traveled with or stayed with the circus for periods of time. 
 It would make sense for Kurt, who likes to both try new things and constantly improve himself to want to pick up more useful skills (one of the first things he is shown doing in his spare time in the early days is learning to be a mechanic for the Blackbird from Sean, for instance. and he mentions in the second example that he does odd jobs). Being able to set a broken bone and care for a sprained wrist or ankle would definitely come in handy for an acrobat.
