Victoria Skellcerf, MD, Family Medicine
Primary Service: Medical Staff
I went to Duke Medical School in North Carolina and completed my family practice residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. After completing my official training, I worked in emergency medicine before moving to Fort Defiance, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. I spent 3 years working at an Indian Health Service Hospital, providing both primary care outpatient and inpatient medical service, as well as delivering babies. I then relocated to the Washington, DC area where I worked initially in emergency medicine, again, before finally joining a family practice. In my family practice, I provided care to patients of all ages, including a significant refugee population, as the DC area has a lot of people who have sought political asylum. In 1996, I relocated to Eugene, where I joined a family practice which was part of a larger medical group. In 1999, I joined the University of Oregon Health Center.Â I am board certified in Family Practice.
I am interested in a wide variety of medical problems, as is common with those of us who go into Family Practice in the first place. I have enjoyed my work with international populations, people with depression and anxiety, eating disorders, obesity, chronic disease, travel medicine, women’s health and diabetes. I love being able to work with students who are in the process of discovering who they are and what they want to do with their lives. It is a privilege to be able to help with problems or barriers which might otherwise get in the way of their learning.
