Abby Davids, MD, MPH, AAHIVS (she/her)

Program Director

HIV & Viral Hepatitis Fellowship Director 

Born and raised in a small town in Ohio, Dr. Davids is a Buckeye at heart. She has a background in public health and social justice, and she graduated from The Ohio State University with a dual MD/MPH in 2011.  She subsequently completed family medicine residency at the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center near Boston, working together with a predominantly immigrant and Latinx population in an FQHC setting. 

After heading west to Full Circle Health/FMRI Boise and finishing her HIV fellowship, Dr. Davids joined the faculty. She has served as the HIV & Viral Hepatitis fellowship director since 2016, and was the associate program director of the Boise residency from 2019-2023. She then became the Boise Program Director in July 2023, as Dr. Justin Glass transitioned into an educational faculty position. They continue to work closely together to help lead the program.

Dr. Davids is a broad spectrum family doc who loves to work with and teach residents in all settings including inpatient, outpatient, and OB. Her clinical expertise lies in the care of newly arrived migrants and refugees, global medicine, and the intersection of infectious disease and primary care. She is committed to providing culturally humble and trauma informed care, and she is grateful to be part of a diverse and passionate interdisciplinary care team. Based in the Emerald Clinic, she staffs the new arrivals, HIV, viral hepatitis, and TB specialty clinics, maintains AAHIVM accreditation as an HIV Specialist, and serves on the expert panel for ECHO Idaho’s Viral Hepatitis and Liver Care series. She also leads the Global Medicine Training Track with Margaret Mortimer.

Dr. Davids cares deeply about healthcare as a human right, immigration advocacy, equity and inclusion, planetary and climate health, reproductive justice, gender affirming care, and continuity OB care. She delights in the beauty and power of microbes and will impart her love of syphilis to anyone willing to listen! She also loves to help residents find and pursue their passions; to celebrate the joy, privilege, and vitality that comes from a career in family medicine; and to work alongside her incredible colleagues every day.

Dr. Davids speaks English and Spanish. Outside of the office she is happiest on a mountain trail, exploring Idaho’s beautiful outdoor spaces with her dog, Juniper.
