I haven't tried this yet because I'd like to clarify your comments

Well, yes I think.  I created Oship manually through the application
interface.  I assume that is why: from app import Oship works okay.

I'm attempting baby steps here.  I'll eventually want MANY EHR objects
inside Oship.clinical (with clinical be a single container within

But I am getting the impression from your comments (in the code above)
that I need to create an HTML form to submit the data.  Whereas I
thought that subclassing  grok.AddForm would (at some URL) give me a
basic add form based on the schema.
