Biographical Information


Ann Trawick, DO, Assistant Professor of Primary Care Medicine, is a third generation native of Colorado.  She attended the University of Colorado at Boulder for her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and has a minor in Spanish.  She spent her junior year in Spain on a study-abroad program.  She got her medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences in California and then did internship and residency through the HealthOne Program at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

She has practiced family medicine in Aurora, Colorado for the last 20 years, and did include obstetrics during ten of those years.  She started teaching part-time at RVU in 2012 and recently joined as full-time faculty in April of 2016.  Teaching primary care is a dream that she has had for many years; and especially being able to do so in an Osteopathic school right here in Colorado.  Her goal is to encourage more young doctors to pursue the primary care route for their careers.

Outside of work, her time is spent with her beloved family:  her husband, one grown and married daughter and three teenage boys. They enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, football, soccer, gardening etc. and consider it a wonderful privilege to live in Colorado where it is possible to enjoy so many different activities.
