Kristine (Tina) Jennings, MD, FAAFP

Program Director
College: Gonzaga University
Medical School: University of Michigan Medical School
Residency: Memorial Family Medicine Residency

Dr. Jennings joined the faculty in 2014 after graduating from residency at Memorial. Dr. Jennings attended medical school at the University of Michigan and originally came to South Bend for her family medicine training at Memorial. During her time at Memorial, she served as Vice Chief where she caught the teaching and administrative bug. Dr. Jennings was born in Hawaii and has lived throughout the country growing up as an Army brat. She found a true home in South Bend after experiencing what the Memorial Family and South Bend community had to offer. She has worked closely with medical student education during her time as faculty, in addition to resident morale and wellness. She transitioned to her role as program director in 2018 and is the first female program director in Memorial Family Medicine’s long history. In 2019, she completed the AFMRD National Institute of Program Directors Fellowship that helped to arm her with the tools to successfully lead the Memorial Program. Her vision includes continuing to enhance gender, racial and cultural diversity among the residency, continuing to provide broad-spectrum family medicine training, focused on team-based care and supporting resident work-life integration. She enjoys full-spectrum practice at Memorial, loves working with residents and counts herself lucky to be surrounded by such an amazing team of people.

Dr. Jennings strives to find balance in her own life and, when not at work, loves spending time with her husband, three daughters, two dogs and one cat. She is an intermittently active distance runner and looks forward to the time when traveling can be a more feasible activity for her family of five. Favorite activities in the Jennings household include game nights, exploring the South Bend and Mishawaka Community and dancing in the living room with her toddlers.
