Megan Barker, MD, MPH

Medical School: University of Cincinnati – College of Medicine
Family Medicine Residency: Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency

Writing a bio about myself is not my favorite thing but the attempts made by others are possibly even more embarrassing. My basic facts are that I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I attended University of Dayton for undergrad where I studied chemical engineering until realizing that my soul was dying from lack of human interaction. I made the switch to medicine (which has proved to be a much better fit) and returned to Cincy for medical school.

I ventured to Maine for residency which turned out to be a far more fun (crazy, huh?) and fulfilling experience than I could have imagined. I continue to be amazed by how wonderful, genuine, and inspiring the faculty and residents at Maine-Dartmouth are. As residency came to a close it was pretty clear that I was too spoiled by the medical community here to leave. I happily joined the Waterville-based faculty where I get the opportunity to teach and to practice full spectrum family medicine. What more could you ask for?!? I am particularly interested in adolescent medicine, women’s health, public health, family planning, and integrative medicine.

When I’m not working or sleeping, I’m most likely color-coding or organizing, watching a nature documentary, or having dinner at my favorite restaurant with my wonderful hubby and whatever crew I can convince to come along.
