Alexandra Beattie, MD

Boise Program
Class of 2024

University of Queensland

Hey! I’m Alex. I grew up in the Green Mountain State with my four younger siblings and attended the University of Vermont for my undergraduate and master’s degrees.   I then moved out to Jackson, WY, and travelled around India for a bit before heading back to Vermont to work as a medical assistant in a Dermatology office. After working with an amazing dermatology team for a couple years, I decided to hop across the pond(s) to study medicine at the University of Queensland. 

My first two years of school were completed in Brisbane, Queensland, a growing city in Eastern Australia, about an hour inland from some glorious beaches and national parks. My third and fourth years of med school brought me back to the States, to complete clinical rotations in New Orleans, LA.  As much as I will miss those INCREDIBLE, salty, buttery, southern biscuits, I am so excited to be back in the western mountains for my family medicine training with the Full Circle Health.  

I’m interested in full-spectrum rural/underserved medicine, with a particular interest in public health, social justice, teaching, and mentoring.  Outside medicine, I cherish time with my loved ones and enjoy getting after some skiing, hiking, running, biking, camping, traveling, or painting when I get the chance!
