Linda Jimenez, MD
Medical School: University of Missouri
I was born in Miami and lived in Managua, Nicaragua for a couple of years before moving to Colorado, which I consider my home state. I attended Colorado College. I double majored in Molecular Biology and History. I spent a year doing research on leukemia at the University of Colorado before attending medical school at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
During medical school, I volunteered with many organizations including MEDZOU, a student-run free clinic for Columbia’s uninsured population; establishing LMSA, representing Mizzou as a student ambassador; paying it forward by tutoring underclassmen and supporting medical educational outreach through Caleb Science Club.
Within family medicine, my interests include global health, women’s health, procedures, medical education, emergency medicine and humanism in medicine. I hope to learn and give much in return while at Abrazo. I look forward to learning more about Arizona. After residency, I hope to travel around until I find my ideal practice location.
Outside of medicine, I love board games, hiking, traveling, food, writing, photography, period pieces, ancient artifacts, painting, archery, marksmanship, cooking and 3D puzzles.
