Dr. Erika Bennett grew up in Toronto, Canada. She has long been interested in the intersection of health care and human rights. After completing her political science degree at Queen’s University, Erika moved to Shanghai to work with young mothers at a grassroots NGO, before returning to Canada to complete a master’s degree in Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa. She completed an internship at the Canadian Mission to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, and worked for two years as an evaluation analyst at the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) (the Canadian equivalent of the CDC) in Ottawa.
Erika completed her M.D. in 2022 at Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, where she was active in Med Students for Choice and a founding member of the Open-Hearted MD Podcast.
Erika is thrilled to join the OHSU Department of Family Medicine where she hopes to build on her interests in maternal health care, reproductive justice and humanism in medicine. She loves nothing more than getting to know her patients one on one and finding ways to empower them to flourish.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher.
