Katie J. Houmes, MD

Family Members: husband and several loving family members

Favorite Travel Spot: Anywhere I can ski (favorite is the Wallowa Ranch in Oregon)

Free time activities/hobbies: Skiing, swimming, hiking, running, riding, back packing, playing with friends and family.

Why U of A FM at SC?:  My husband and I searched nationwide for a program we would fit in with.  I wanted a program which was respected among the medical community, was largely unopposed but still offered an academic quality teaching and rural emphasis.  I have not been here long, but could not be more happy.  My co-residents feel like family and I could not imagine more responsive, hard- working and supportive faculty.
