Jennifer Edgoose MD, MPH

Jennifer Edgoose, MD, MPH joined the UW medical faculty in 2010 from the Pacific Northwest, where she worked for more than a decade in a community health clinic. She graduated from Wellesley College with a B.A. in biological chemistry and 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 care of the underserved and medically disadvantaged; cross-cultural care; population and community health; evidence-based medicine; and the patient-doctor relationship, particularly relationships with our most challenging patients. In 2014 she was honored with the Baldwin Lloyd Teaching Award from Madison residents. Currently, she is championing the 2020 Initiative engaging the entire department in renewed conversations and commitment to diversity, inclusion and health equity.
