Alexis Anderson, MD

Boise Program
Class of 2025

University of Washington School of Medicine

Alexis is from Wild-Windy-Wyoming.

She grew up playing outside; hiking, skiing, backpacking, etc. She completed undergrad schooling at the University of Wyoming where she studied physiology and particularly enjoyed researching the intersection between Allopathic and Traditional Medicines. While transitioning to medical school, she worked for a primary care clinic and a free clinic in Jackson, Wyoming where she discovered the importance of public health, continuity, and inclusivity in medicine.

Through medical school at the University of Washington, Alexis completed the Global Health Pathway which allowed her to study STI stigma abroad and reinforced her interest in rural/underserved medicine. Outside of public health, her clinical interests include women’s health, maternal/child health, sports medicine, and rural/underserved populations.  Outside of clinic, she enjoys rock-climbing trips with her partner Evan, downhill/cross country skiing, and exploring trails around Boise (especially ones with wildflowers).
