Kelly Wilkinson, MDSports Medicine Fellowship Director - Boise
Dr. Kelly Wilkinson is a former all-American collegiate lacrosse player at University of California Davis and NCAA Woman of the Year in 2004. Dr. Wilkinson has always loved athletics and was lucky to grow up in small fishing and lumber town on the North Coast of California, competing in soccer, basketball, softball and track while graduating as valedictorian of Fort Bragg High School in 1999.
She naturally became interested in sports medicine after a knee injury in college disrupted her collegiate lacrosse career and challenged her identity as an athlete. After graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor and then master’s degree in Food Science at UC Davis she briefly worked as a food tasting panel sensory scientist in Cincinnati, OH.
Working in the food industry for brief time compelled her to return to medicine seeking a more humanistic and altruistic career. She completed medical school at University of California San Diego and found Family Medicine specializing in sports medicine to be a natural fit. Dr. Wilkinson completed her residency at Sutter Family Medicine Residency in Sacramento, CA and Fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine at Full Circle Health in 2015. She joined Full Circle Health as the primary care sports medicine fellowship director in 2016.
Dr. Wilkinson enjoys helping athletes of all abilities and encouraging others to be physically active for health and longevity. Outside of medicine when she is not chasing her small children she enjoys trail running, hiking, snowboarding, refereeing lacrosse, and baking
