Dr. Cori McClure Poffenberger grew up in Southern Oregon, where she used to complain about Californians until she decided to become one. She attended Stanford University for her undergraduate studies, then moved to Nashville to complete her MD at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She returned to Stanford for her Emergency Medicine residency, but ended up completing residency at Harbor-UCLA in Torrance, where she also did her ultrasound fellowship. She stayed on at Harbor as faculty for four years before, yes, returning to Stanford where she now serves as the Director of Faculty Development and Wellness for the Department of Emergency Medicine. She enjoys running, listening to country music, reading, and sleeping, but she rarely gets to do that last one thanks to her three children.
