Hello! My name is Anna Goswick, and I was born and raised in Madison, WI. I was the oldest of four girls and after growing up in the Midwest, I moved to Denver, Colorado where I studied Neuroscience and Exercise Science at Regis University. During college, I ran cross country and track and was involved in various community outreach and advocacy projects for underserved and Spanish-speaking populations. After graduating I married my husband, Tyler, and we moved to Durham, NC where I spent three years at Duke University doing learning and memory research in the Department of Neuroscience and Psychology. In 2011, I began my two-year commitment with Teach for America in Charlotte, NC where I taught high school science to some incredible students who continue to inspire me to this day! After teaching, I was fortunate enough to attend medical school at UNC, where I had the opportunity to interact with our amazing Family Medicine Faculty through our student-run free clinic, Honduran Health Alliance (global women’s health initiative), longitudinal medical Spanish curriculum, and rural health rotations. These experiences, along with my passions for health education, prevention and equity, ultimately led me to pursue a career in family medicine. Despite loving the interview trail, I chose to stay at UNC because of the program’s rigorous training in inpatient medicine, strong commitment to social justice, and incredible sense of family. Furthermore, UNC’s Underserved Track provides all of the clinical opportunities I was hoping for: caring for Spanish-speaking patients at a Federally-Qualified Heath Center, working with medical students and other residents in an academic setting, caring for patients in urban and rural community hospitals, and engaging vulnerable populations outside of our clinic walls.
In my free time, I love to run, explore the outdoors, write, and spend quality time with my friends and family. My husband and I are thrilled to be staying in the Triangle, and I could not be more excited to continue my residency training in the Underserved Track at UNC!
