Jennifer Edgoose, MD, MPH joins the UW medical faculty from the Pacific Northwest, where she worked for more than a decade in a community health clinic. After graduating from Wellesley College with a B.A. in biological chemistry, she spent a year doing research at the National Institutes of Health before attending Columbia University where she received her M.D. and M.P.H in 1996. There she developed a strong interest in primary care and patient advocacy which led her to enter a family medicine residency at the University of Washington where she piloted a new track that focused on the urban underserved. She followed this by joining a community health clinic providing full spectrum family medicine including obstetrical care to the uninsured and underserved of greater Tacoma, WA. Her interests lie in providing ongoing work with the underserved and medically disadvantaged in the context of the patient centered medical home; health literacy and cross-cultural care; the patient-doctor relationship; and end-of-life issues. She wants to explore the complex challenges of providing high quality, evidence-based health care for all and to help residents and medical students experience the rewards of work in community medicine and community health clinics.
