Jana Baatenburg, MD
Wayne State University
I am interested in nutrition and preventative medicine.
Why I chose this program/Grand Rapids for my training
I grew up in the Grand Rapids area and love the community here. I would like to someday practice in West Michigan so it was an easy decision to stay in the area for residency. While in medical school I was impressed with the Family Medicine residency program here in Grand Rapids and am excited to now be a part of it. I am blessed to have my family nearby as well, which was an additional draw to the program. The city of Grand Rapids is a great place to live; I love its restaurants, coffee shops and its proximity to Lake Michigan. I am excited to be staying here for residency.
Hobbies/what I do outside of work
I love running and staying active outdoors. I also love all things involving food and coffee and love to cook, bake and visit as many farmer’s markets, specialty food stores, restaurants and coffee shops that I can.
