Dr. Shayna Waldbaum is a family physician. She loves the long-lasting relationships with patients, the emphasis on preventative medicine and the holistic views of health and wellbeing that come with family medicine. Dr. Waldbaum enjoys working with all ages of patients giving patients tools to be in control of their own health. She is especially interested in women’s health, underserved population medicine, LGBTQ inclusive health, and preventative care.
Dr. Waldbaum grew up in the Seattle area with a large close-knit family. After many years of being a diehard Husky fan, she attended the University of Washington. There she studied microbiology while taking positions as a TA, research assistant and hospital volunteer. She also spent time exploring her passion for social justice through educational opportunities, peer-led discussions and volunteering.
After graduation, she completed an AmeriCorps service year in Chicago as a resource specialist for an agency that helps individuals with financial and/or housing insecurity gain employment. The following year she worked as an emergency department scribe with the goal of later attending medical school.
During her time at Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, she volunteered with underserved communities through health outreach and the student-run free clinic. Over the summer after her first year, she spent a month in Uganda volunteering at a clinic and teaching health literacy classes. She also joined the PCAR Lab at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute as a research assistant and continued to participate in their research throughout the rest of her education.
In her free time, Shayna can be found surrounding herself with family and friends, finding live music, traveling, discovering new coffee shops, watching football and/or doing yoga.
