Dr. Andrea Chisholm is a former writer for Verywell Health covering women's health. She has been in clinical practice for almost 20 years providing obstetrical and gynecological care to a very diverse group of women. Until very recently her practice has been in the Boston area where she regularly worked with medical students about women's sexual and reproductive health and how to approach these often challenging conversations.
Recently Dr. Chisholm relocated to Cody, Wyoming. Feeling frustrated by the burnout and negativity in healthcare she really wanted to connect back to real patient and community centered "old fashioned" healthcare and she found the perfect place with Cody Regional Health.
Dr. Chisholm graduated from Hunter College-CUNY with a major in English (1991) and Boston University School of Medicine in (1995). She completed her OB/GYN residency at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York (1999). She has currently relocated her clinical practice to Cody, Wyoming from Cambridge, Massachusetts where she taught students from Harvard and Tufts University medical schools.
