BIO

Dr. Clodagh Ryan is a board certified family medicine physician. She grew up in Ireland and graduated from Trinity College Dublin Medical School in 1999. After working in primary care in Ireland for a few years, she moved to the western suburbs of Chicago where she completed family medicine residency at Adventist La Grange Memorial hospital and spent 8 years in private insurance-based practice. As the medical landscape became more difficult for the independent family physician, her disillusionment with medicine grew. She switched to direct primary care (DPC), opening Cara (pronounced CAR-UH) Direct Care in 2017.

Ryan also serves as adjunct faculty and preceptor at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. Her roles include course director, lecturer and preceptor of medical students.In 2020, she developed the virtual elective, “Introduction to Clinical Practice with Telemedicine.” The elective includes instruction on the U.S. health care system, health insurance, and the corporatization of medicine.

Dr. Ryan spends her free time playing Irish music on the concertina and fiddle, with her husband and four children who are also musicians. Her other hobbies include running and reading. KEEP READING TO SEE DR. RYAN PLAYING TRADITIONAL IRISH MUSIC!

BIO

 

I am a Filipinx creator and connector. I discovered my love of being a cradle to grave family physician while at Creighton Med School on a rotation in Superior, NE. I trained for residency in Modesto preparing to be a rural family doc and moved to rural Northern CA after residency. I worked in the broken corporate model of medicine because I did not know any other option than to be employed. 

 

Then, I learned about DPC and the bands holding my wings were clipped. Now, I fly free as a Direct Primary Care physician being able to practice medicine how I have always wanted to. With this freedom, I am charged up to share with other physicians the power of the Direct Primary Care model. I will tell any and all about DPC because the model is truly at the core of how we will take back healthcare.

About the Series

Physicians are increasingly looking to different practice models, as burnout rates continue to climb. This series explores the DPC model, in candid conversations with DPC-practice owners themselves. Hosted by Dr. Maryal Concepcion, who is herself a DPC physician, you’ll hear why DPC docs are happy with the practices they’ve built.
