Victoria Murrain

Career Story: 

Upon graduation from the residency, I moved to Plainview, TX and worked in a community health center for 3 years. Living in the panhandle of Texas in tornado alley was not my idea of fun, so we quickly sought better living quarters once my National Health Service Corps commitment was completed. We returned to Tucson in 2002 and I returned to the Department of Family and Community Medicine as medical director of the family medicine residency Clinic. After a few years, I graduated into the position of residency program director. In 2004 I transferred my practice to Kino Hospital to help establish a family medicine practice that would eventually host a new family medicine. In 2006, I accepted the position of Special Assistant to the Dean for Graduate Medical Education (GME), and I am now the Assistant Dean for GME on the University Physicians Healthcare Hospital (UPHH) campus, formerly known as Kino Hospital. I continue to provide primary care in our outpatient clinic at UPHH and provide maternity and newborn care at University Medical Center.

Notable Personal Accomplishments: 

My sons are my pride and joy

Notable Professional Accomplishments:

Also helped establish the Rural Health OB program in the family medicine residency, where we provide prenatal care and delivery services to a group of un- or underinsured women.
