Siwen Dong grew up in China, the Netherlands, Maryland, and Ohio. She attended college at the Ohio State University where she studied Biology and French, and stayed in Columbus, Ohio, to pursue her MD at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. She returned to Maryland to complete her pediatric residency training at the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital.
Siwen has a special interest in primary care medicine and the ability to provide continuity of care to patients of a variety of backgrounds. Her continuity and community clinic experiences during residency were invaluable to her education by exposing her to a broad range of patient populations and clinic settings, and has helped her to become not only compassionate and comprehensive in delivering care, but also culturally and linguistically aware of the needs her patients. She especially enjoyed her time at Shanghai Children’s Medical Center in Shanghai, China, as well as Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and hopes that she will be able to incorporate her global health experiences into her practice.
Siwen moved to Denver, Colorado, in the summer of 2018. She loves living in Denver and exploring the outdoors, and has even taken up learning how to ski. In her free time, Siwen likes cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes (OH!), cooking, being outdoors, and traveling the world.
