Primary Care Residents 2016 - 2017

Jacob Walker, MD is a first year resident in the primary care track. He was born and raised in Greenwood, IN and studied microbiology at Indiana University. He then moved east to attend medical school at Boston University. Interested in geriatrics, he sought out residencies with multiple training sites, a diverse patient population, and robust outpatient training. After four years in Boston, he and his partner (also a PGY-1) were excited to be living in an equally LGBT-friendly city with considerably more sunshine. He loves indulging his sweet tooth at Denver's many ice cream parlors with plenty of running and hiking to compensate.

Katie Ochoa, MD is a second year resident in the primary care track. She was born and raised in Austin, TX and majored in Humanities at the University of Texas at Austin. She spent a gap year working with a non-profit in Managua, Nicaragua, then went back to medical school at Baylor in Houston. She was drawn to the primary care track at UC Denver due to the supportive faculty, continuity clinics with strong Hispanic populations, and the unique HIV training track within the program, allowing for a separate HIV continuity clinic in second and third year. Not to mention, she wanted to experience the joys of living in Denver – a vibrant, young city with mountains less than an hour away and parks at every corner.

Alejandro Mora, MD is a third year resident in the primary care track. He grew up in Houston, TX (with a few stints in New York City and Bogota, Colombia) and attended college at Rice University where he majored in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Sports Medicine. After finishing at Rice, he moved to Galveston, TX to attend medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. After Alejandro’s interview at the University of Colorado, he knew that this is where he wanted to be. The entire program is incredibly supportive, and with the unique emphasis in primary care, the residents are able to incorporate their personal goals into a customizable education. And on top of all this, in his free time he has been enjoying life in Colorado to the fullest- hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and trying out some of the many (delicious) restaurants and microbreweries in the area!
