Dr. Terrie TaylorTerrie Taylor, DO
Terrie E. Taylor, DO, has been a life-long resident of Traverse City, Michigan. She attended Swarthmore College and the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, and then interned at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, Michigan. Her first global health experience was in 1982, in the context of an NIH-funded research project in the Sudan – her interest in parasitic diseases, her delight in the challenges of working in research limited settings and her willingness to share all of this with medical students culminated in a faculty position at the Michigan State University College of Medicine in 1986 (following an internal medicine residency at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital and a Masters level course at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine).

Since then, Dr. Taylor has lived and worked in Malawi for six months each year. Her research focus is the pathogenesis of severe malaria in Malawian children --- and she has enjoyed hosting 24 final year medical students from Michigan State in Malawi during her time in Malawi every year.

Dr. Taylor will draw on her experiences and will use a case-based approach to show examples of how international medicine can intersect with primary care.
