Jeffrey Koetje, M.D.

Reproductive Health Programming Strategist

A graduate of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Dr. Jeff Koetje is currently serving the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) as a Reproductive Health Programming Specialist 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 education. He is a former director of business and strategy for pre-health programs in Kaplan Test Prep’s national office, where he has also served as a director of Kaplan Partner Solutions, a higher education consulting team within Kaplan Test Prep, which supports diversity, enrichment, and education equity in STEM and Health programs. In 2012 – 2016, 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 Critical Epistemologies and Meaning-Making for a center of excellence for liberationist theologies, the Activist Theology Project. Dr. Koetje is motivated in his personal and professional life by a deep commitment to anti-racist, intersectional feminist, and queer advocacy for structural transformation in the “caring and companioning” professions.
