Nicole Jeffery, MD

Nicole grew up in Utqiagvik, Alaska, a rural town located among the ice and tundra north of the Arctic Circle. She traveled south to California to attend Stanford University and complete a B.A. in Human Biology with an area of concentration in Adolescent Development and the Law. After college, she stayed in the Bay Area and worked in health-tech and finance while taking post-baccalaureate courses through the University of California Berkeley Extension at night. She was excited to return to health when she completed the Health 4 All Fellowship Program through the Stanford University Prevention Research Center, a program focused in community health and prevention research.

Thereafter, Nicole worked as a clinical research coordinator on two community-based participatory research studies, one focused on diabetes prevention with the Urban American Indian community, and the other focused on cardiovascular health with the Northwest Alaska Native population. She was also a program associate for the Stanford Program of Bedside Medicine and involved in pipeline efforts, working on pilot study regarding Native mentorship in public health.

Nicole attended the University of Washington School of Medicine as part of the Alaska WWAMI cohort for medical school. She was a TRUST (Targeted Rural Underserved Track) Scholar and completed the Underserved and Indian Health Pathways. After feeling like there needed to be better education around serving Alaska Native communities, she founded the Alaska Native and Traditional Medicine Interest Group. She was also co-president of the Family Medicine Interest Group in Alaska.

Nicole is excited to be a Rural Training Track (RTT) resident and train in Port Angeles, WA after spending intern year in Seattle.
