Janet M. Howard, MD
Kaiser Permanente, Rockwood Medical Office
My experience stretches all over the map.
I graduated from Ross University School of Medicine and became a pediatric resident at University of Connecticut, where I received my Master in Public Health. After graduation, I started working as a women’s health care provider for the Indian Health Service in Bethel, Alaska, and also served the surrounding villages.
Once I completed my residency, I left Alaska to spend three years as a general practitioner in the exact opposite climate: the city of Harare, Zimbabwe. When I returned to the states, I worked at Oregon Health & Science University student health service and at the same time did temporary work for Kaiser Permanente. In 2005, I became a permanent staff member, and in 2008, I became the lead pediatrician at Rockwood
How I Thrive
The goals that I set for myself keep me motivated and moving forward. I am very passionate about competing in triathlon and duathlon events every summer, and I train for these events all year round. I have won world championships and have a great understanding of young athletes, which helps me in my practice. Although I have three very active kids, I still find time to train with my husband and our friends almost every day.
