Second Year Fellows

Allison Cohen, MD - Chief Fellow

Medical School: Medical College of Wisconsin
Psychiatry Residency: Psychiatry Residency Spokane

I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and grew up in Hayden, Idaho with my parents, older sister, two younger brothers, and two black labs. My interest in medicine started with my parents, an emergency room physician and paramedic. I went to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where I studied biochemistry and psychology, and then moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I pursued residency in Spokane because it would allow me to be close to my family after being in the Midwest for 8 years. I enjoy living in Spokane because it is a good-sized city with stunning surroundings and four seasons, and the residency program here is supportive with a focus on creating quality physicians. I was impressed with the faculty and staff I met during my interview, and am so happy I chose to train here after meeting my wonderful co-residents. I am interested in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and am excited to explore it more during rotations. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and relaxing at home.
