Anna Fox, MD

Magic Valley Program

University College Dublin

Anna Fox was born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Influenced by family travel and witnessing her parents’ rural health care practices, she became resolved to provide medical care to underserved, particularly rurally-located patients.

As an undergraduate, Anna attended the University of Washington, where she developed a passion for medical ethics, and completed degrees in Medical Anthropology and Global Health, and Microbiology. She attended medical school at UCD in Ireland, where a nationalized health care system necessitated emphasis on resource-awareness and the fundamentals of medicine.

Looking at completing two years of general surgery training, Anna began to search for the kind of program that would  provide the breadth of training required of a rural/frontier physician working in under-resourced areas, whether in the US or abroad, and found it in Full Circle Health Magic Valley. Anna anticipates becoming an active member of a rural community and cultivating meaningful patient care relationships with longevity.

Anna enjoys distance running and cycling, sailing, skiing, Russian literature, and peanut butter M&Ms.
