Dr. Jennifer Egelseer was just 13 years old when she realized her future career would have to involve working with children and making a difference in their lives. As her career path began to unfold she found she was drawn to general pediatrics.
Dr. Egelseer completed medical school at the University of Health Sciences ~ College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri. She went on to complete her Pediatric Residency at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2006. After spending a year in Eritrea, East Africa working with Physicians for Peace to help set up a pediatric training program, she decided to settle in Oregon and eventually joined Oregon Pediatrics in 2010.
Her interests include triathlons, basketball, and anything in the water, and also ceramics and art.
As a pediatrician I’m able to care for the entire family through caring for the child. Each member of the family is so important in the child’s life. Each child is so uniquely individual.
