" I graduated from the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Medicine in 2011 with my MD and BA in Biology through the combined MD/BA program. Shortly, thereafter I moved to Portland to start my 5 years of residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at OHSU. My interests in the field include joint reconstruction and orthopaedic oncology. I hope to bring the unique perspective of a surgeon scientist to Dr. Keller's lab as we work to develop a 3D in vitro sarcoma model system. In my free time I enjoy playing disc golf and spoiling my cats. Kirsten "
