Zara Bowden, MD

Class of 2023-2024

Dr. Zara Bowden grew up in Fort Worth, TX. Her first introduction to medicine was through her grandfather, who was also a Family Physician. She was struck by the way he made a bustling metropolis feel like a small-town neighborhood, and it was his interactions with his patients that initially inspired her to pursue a career in medicine. The opportunity to provide longitudinal and holistic care to patients and their families, particularly in underserved communities is intrinsic to Family Medicine’s core and aligned strongly with what drew her to medicine from the start. She graduated from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, and she then completed her Family Medicine Residency at Full Circle Health in Boise, ID. Over her three years at Full Circle Health, she developed a passion for reproductive health and obstetric care. She is grateful to continue her training in surgical/high-risk Obstetrics as a fellow. 

In her free time, Dr. Bowden enjoys camping, hiking/backpacking, attempting water sports, hosting potlucks, crocheting while listening to podcasts, and spending time with her family and friends!
