Dr. Judy Caldwell is a 1995 graduate of the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP), now Western University. During her time at COMP she was recalled for Desert Storm and served at Camp Pendleton, CA, as an E-6 Navy Hospital Corpsman.  She delayed graduation another year to complete a one year Undergraduate Teaching Fellowship specializing in Osteopathic Manipulation.

Dr. Caldwell completed a rotating internship and Family Medicine residency at San Bernardino County Medical Center, now Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, in California.  She is board certified in Family Medicine with OMT.

After a few years of solo private Osteopathic Family Medicine practice in Pomona, California and doing house calls in the Fresno Valley, Dr. Caldwell began teaching Osteopathic Principles and Practice (OPP) at Touro University Nevada COM.  She received a teaching award from the students in 2009.

In 2010, Dr. Caldwell was one of the founding clinical faculty at William Carey University COM in Hattiesburg, MS; and later become Chair of Family Medicine. She taught OPP, Clinical Skills, and clinical content while facilitating the development of curriculum for all four years of osteopathic medical students.  Dr. Caldwell has taught OPP at residency program and national and state meetings.

She has a special interest in Obstetrics and newborn infants.  She works with patients with chronic pain and headaches, using “homework” for the patients to do to improve their condition.  As an attending physician at Southern Utah Veterans Home (SUVH), she has treated patients with OMT decreasing their pain.

On her off time, Dr. Caldwell enjoys camping, hiking, rock hounding, creating and sewing costumes for Halloween, and food science.
