Professional Statement

Kristin Anderson, a Seattle-area native, studied neurobiology at the University of Washington before heading to the other coast for her medical school training at Tufts University in Boston. She graduated from Tufts with an MD/MPH in 2007, and then returned home to complete her family medicine residency at the Swedish First Hill Family Medicine program. Following residency, she pursued additional training through the Swedish First Hill geriatric fellowship program. During this fellowship year she acted as junior faculty in many capacities including developing and integrating an LGBT geriatric curriculum. Upon graduation from fellowship she was hired on as a full spectrum family physician at Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center, one of the oldest federally qualified health centers in the Seattle area, and one of the Cherry Hill residency satellite continuity clinics. In addition to her clinical duties, while at Carolyn Downs, Dr.Anderson has demonstrated her enthusiasm for teaching via facilitating geriatric assessment clinics, participating in resident didactic sessions, and starting a resident procedure clinic. Though she has worked with the Carolyn Downs residents in both the outpatient and inpatient settings since 2011, Dr. Anderson officially joined the faculty at Cherry Hill as the Residency Clinical Site Director and head of geriatric curriculum in the fall of 2014. Dr. Anderson was recently married, and on (rare) common days-off, she and her partner, Natalie, can be found on the softball field, volleyball court, running, hiking, or traveling.
