Claire Thomson grew up North Carolina, where she stayed for her Undergraduate degree, Medical School and MPH in Health Care and Prevention, all completed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A mere eleven years, three trips to study in Latin America, one new dog, and two men's college national basketball championships later, she finally left Chapel Hill and headed north to Providence, Rhode Island to complete her residency at Brown Family Medicine. She so loved her time at Brown that she stayed on to complete her fellowship in Global and Maternal Child Health and Faculty Development, teaching and learning full-scope family medicine in Rhode Island and in Webuye, Kenya.
She joined Swedish First Hill in January 2018, and is thrilled to be part of such a dedicated and fun community of family med docs. Her clinical interests include maternity care, global health and full-scope reproductive health; research interests include medical education and health systems science. When not at work, she can be found running, hiking, reading novels, and baking biscuits.
