Ryan Kuhar, MD

Dr. Kuhar was born and raised in Augusta, GA before attending Emory University in Atlanta where he majored in French Literature and thought it might be a good idea to be an EMT on the side to prepare for his dream job at the time of becoming a ski patroller.

Several years after undergraduate, he completed his MPH at the University of Washington in Community-Oriented Public Health Practice (COPHP) where he advanced his understanding of the social determinants of health and health inequities - developing a love of program design and evaluation along the way. The experience also confirmed his desire to act at the interpersonal level of health care delivery specifically for underserved and marginalized populations. At the University of Washington School of Medicine, Dr. Kuhar found family medicine to be the best way to help his patients through the benefit of longitudinal relationships over the life course. In addition to full-scope family medicine training, he is particularly interested in addiction medicine and integrating service-learning and advocacy into residency education for the benefit of the communities the residency serves. In his free time, he enjoys alpine activities such as back-country skiing and climbing deep in the Cascades and Coast Range with his wife, and he is looking forward to passing their obsession on to their new son.
