Kirsta Hoffman, MD
Kirsta is a native of Appleton. She attended the University of Minnesota where she majored in Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development. She is a proud U of M Gopher but a true Wisconsinite at heart, so she decided to pursue her medical education in her home state. After college, she spent a couple of years volunteering at the Living Healthy Community Clinic in Oshkosh, a free clinic that served the uninsured. There she learned the importance of preventative medicine and the value of getting to know patients through continuity of care. In medical school, Kirsta continued volunteering through the student-run Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured in Milwaukee, was the founding co-president of both the campus’ family medicine and wilderness medicine interest groups, and chaired the student-run wellness committee.
As a lifetime Girl Scout who considers camp to be her second home, she loves anything in the outdoors, from hiking and sea kayaking to stand up paddle boarding and biking. In addition, she enjoys long-distance running, cooking, drawing, and spending time with her boyfriend and their dogs.
Kirsta chose to return to the Fox Valley for residency because of the program’s strong obstetrical and full-spectrum training. She rotated in the clinic during medical school and felt a sense of family within the residents, faculty, and staff and appreciated the clinic’s strong connection to the community. Her interests include obstetrics, pediatrics, preventative medicine, wellness, and taking care of patients at every age and stage of their lives.
