Dr. Monica Radford Green is originally from Georgia and received her medical training at Medical College of Georgia, Vanderbilt University, Emory University, and Atlanta Medical Center. She completed residencies in both Internal Medicine and Psychiatry, as well an additional year of Child Psychiatry training. Throughout her own training and subsequent work as an attending physician at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Green focused upon the optimization of care for both underserved and veteran populations. She strongly believes that the thoughtful development of our future physicians is essential to the meaningful and sustained progress of medicine: this entails not only excellent clinical acumen and research-based practice, but also persistent attention to the specific needs of the particular individual and relentless compassion for both the patients and their families. She therefore focuses upon providing General Internal Medicine clinical teaching and mentoring of UTSW medical students and residents within the VA North Texas system. She integrates her previous Psychiatric training and experience into both her teaching and direct provision of patient care. Dr. Green’s interests outside of medicine include her family, sports, coaching baseball, music, animals of all varieties, exposure to new experiences/places, and lifelong learning/development of new skills.
