Jeffrey Koetje, M.D.

Reproductive Health Programming Strategist

A graduate of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Jeff Koetje is currently serving the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) as a Reproductive Health Programming Strategist for the AMSA Reproductive Health Project. Since discovering that his interests were less related to clinical medicine or biomedical research, and more related to the systems and cultures of education through which future professionals are developed, he has worked in various capacities in the “interstitia” of formal medical education. Previously, Jeff served as Director of Education and Experiences for AMSA, in which capacity he developed national programming and educational opportunities related to the social mission of medical education. Outside of AMSA, Jeff serves as Curator of Meaning-Making for a start-up project called Our Collective Becoming. Dr. Koetje is motivated in his personal and professional life by a deep commitment to anti-racist, anti-oppressive, intersectional feminist, and queer advocacy for structural transformation in the “caring and companioning” professions – medical care, educational care, and spiritual care.
