Rachel Rosedale, DO
Rachel is a born and raised west-coaster who earned her medical degree at Pacific Northwest University in Yakima, Washington. She commissioned in the United States Navy prior to medical school and completed her Family Medicine residency training at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune in coastal North Carolina. Rachel is an enthusiastic full-scope family physician, and her penchant for geriatrics rooted prior to medical school when she worked as a Nursing Assistant in a Skilled Nursing Facility. During her residency, the profound, multi-generational impact of caring for the elderly was driven home through navigating her grandmother’s end-of-life care. These experiences resonate with Rachel’s passion to provide excellent care across the lifespan, and highlight geriatrics as an intrinsically vital part of Family Medicine. She anticipates geriatrics will feature heavily in her Naval medical career, treating veterans and retirees, and ultimately looks forward to Family Medicine Geriatric civilian practice in Washington State. When not wearing a stethoscope, she can be found outside, either horseback riding or getting lost in the woods, or inside, devouring a good book with a great cup of coffee.
