Brayden Chamberlain, MDBoise Program
Class of 2025
University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine
Brayden was born and raised in Southern Utah. As the oldest of 6 children, he had to learn early how to be responsible for the care of others. He first became interested in medicine because of the example of his father, who is also a family physician. His dad would care for the “cuts and bruises” he and his siblings experienced growing up. As a result, Brayden decided he wanted to be able to do that too.
That interest grew after he served a mission in Mexico for his church – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This experience led him towards his passion in caring for people most in need. Therefore, becoming a physician was the perfect answer. After learning Spanish and returning from Mexico, he began a path that would ultimately lead him here, to beautiful Boise, Idaho.
He studied biology in undergrad at Dixie State University. After spending a year doing research at Baylor College of Medicine, he obtained his MD from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine in South Texas.
Along the way, he married his sweetheart Courtney. Together they have welcomed two crazy boys, Daniel and Luke, into their home. They also have three loveable dogs that always keep them on their toes. In his free time, Brayden really enjoys spending time with his family.
Brayden is excited to be here in Boise, where he has the opportunity to get full-spectrum family medicine training and also enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Following residency, he hopes to be able to take what he has learned and work alongside his father to help people live their lives to the fullest.
