Meet Dr. Jennifer Walsh Primary Care Pediatrician in Dallas
With training and experience in both internal medicine and pediatrics, Jennifer Walsh, M.D., brings a unique perspective to caring for adolescents ages 11 to 21. Kids in that age range have their own needs for medical care, education, counseling, and support as they make the journey into adulthood.
“I’ve cared for patients across the lifespan, so I know what’s coming next for them,” she says. “I’m able to help them navigate decisions they’re facing now that will affect their health in the long term.”
Dr. Walsh has a particular interest in adolescent reproductive health and also treats patients with complex health issues that may be more difficult to manage during the behavioral, social, and hormonal changes of adolescence.
“I enjoy working with these patients, and I value being in a position to provide health care and support to them at this critical time in their lives,” she says.
Dedicated to Patients – and Training Professionals
Outside the clinic, Dr. Walsh is Chief of the Division of Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and is the founding Director of the Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Program at UT Southwestern. She was instrumental in the formation of both and is dedicated to their clinical and educational missions.
“UT&nbps;Southwestern is doing something very meaningful here,” Dr. Walsh says. “Not only are we building a program that allows us to better serve our current patients, we’re also dual training the next generation of med/peds specialists so they can provide high-quality health care for families and individuals throughout the age spectrum.”
