My name is Megan Spencer and I grew up on a farm in southern Michigan with my parents and my older sister. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Michigan where I studied Ecology & Evolutionary Biology with a minor in Gender and Health. I went on to attend Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine for medical school. Because my passion for working with people was one of the things that drew me to medicine, I knew early on that I wanted to work in a specialty that allowed me to build long-term relationships with my patients. Later during my clinical rotations, month after month I found something to love about every specialty. Realizing that Family Medicine allowed me to bring together parts of every specialty to provide long-term and comprehensive care, I knew that I had found my place in medicine.
When it came to residency, I knew that I wanted to stay in the Midwest and I wanted a well-rounded program that would allow me to learn full spectrum Family Medicine. Memorial checked these boxes, but it was really the overwhelming sense of community that I felt on interview day and second look that made my decision. I am so excited to join the Memorial family and start the next stage of my life in South Bend!
In my free time I enjoy being outdoors and love hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling, gardening, and bird watching. Most of all, I love snuggling and playing with my Golden Retriever, Copper
