Dr. Katie Putnam is a family physician. She is passionate about being a well-rounded family medicine physician while also working in population health and advocating for improved medical care.

During medical school, she did clinical and research work at the Ministry of Health in Palau. She focused on maternal and child health. She has also volunteered at a safety-net clinic and women's clinic through the former Southwest Community Health Center in Portland. These experiences inspired her interest in providing health care centered on communities and families, while also working on research to address public health needs.

Before medical school, Dr. Putnam served as a research assistant at the National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C. She worked in a laboratory that focused on rare genetic and metabolic disorders.

When she's not working, Dr. Putnam enjoys exploring the outdoors. She enjoys playing group sports, with limited athletic talent, and navigating Portland's food scene. She also enjoys cultivating her home garden, listening to podcasts, reading, traveling and spending time with her husband and two poorly behaved cats.
