Keith Christian, MD

Medical School: University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

Hello! My name is Keith Christian, and I am the son of two Puerto Rican immigrants who was born and raised in Fort Collins, CO. I went to college at Colorado State University, where I met my beautiful wife Rachel. I love to learn and have always been a generalist at heart, which is why I did a dual degree in college; I majored in biochemistry and interdisciplinary liberal arts, with minors in Spanish and philosophy. From Colorado, I went to the University of Cincinnati for medical school where I was shaped by my patient population, especially the Hispanic population, as well as the doctors that mentored me, such as the family docs involved in the local Catholic Medical Association. ­­­

I am beyond excited to continue my training in South Bend, Indiana. It’s a long way away from home and family, but being able to train under the supportive doctors and rich practice environment at Memorial is completely worth it! I’m especially excited to try out the scope simulator prior to training to do colonoscopies, and I can’t wait to continue honing my Spanish skills in one of Memorial’s international medicine electives.­­­

Outside of the hospital, I also enjoy spending time with my wife and friends. Rachel and I love to dance, so we are hoping to find a new venue for salsa or blues dancing soon. We also love going out into nature. Some of my personal hobbies include playing cards, ping pong, and lifting weights!
