Ann Schmidt

A physician in UW Health’s internal-medicine clinic, Schmidt has recently been named a fellow with the American College of Physicians for her scholarship, clinical practice, teaching and administrative work. She also serves as service chief for the Department of General Internal Medicine at the UW Medical Foundation and holds a faculty position in the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. Schmidt says her degree in nutritional sciences gives her a strong basis for talking to patients about the steps they can take to prevent heart disease and other chronic diseases, a subject she gives special attention in her clinical care.
