Hobbs Katherine MedPeds

Katherine Hobbs, MD (she/her)

Position: PGY-1

Katherine grew up in Menlo Park, CA but has now been in New England for the past decade. She attended Middlebury College where she majored in History and played varsity soccer. Prior to landing at Brown for medical school, she spent two years in the Boston area as a Geriatric Psychiatry research assistant, coordinating Alzheimer’s drug trials and mood disorder studies. Her experiences working with patients with dementia and their families solidified her love of medicine and patient care. During her time at Brown, Katherine enjoyed developing her medical education skills through mentoring and teaching opportunities, discovered her love for narrative medicine and palliative care through the My Life, My Story project, and gained a deep appreciation for street medicine through regular street outreach with individuals experiencing homelessness. Her broad array of clinical interests and love of working with patients of all ages led her to the wonderful field Med-Peds. She is thrilled to be staying at Brown for her Med-Peds training and is excited to share all her favorite parts of this quirky little state with her new co-residents! In her free time, Katherine loves being outside with friends, whether hiking, playing soccer, jumping in the ocean year-round, or playing very mediocre frisbee golf. Her simplest joys are a long walk, lazy morning, or a good book.
