dr. Joshua Frankland recently joined the team of health care providers at the Olympic Medical Doctors Children’s Clinic, Olympic Medical Center officials announced last week.
His focus is on caring for young people from birth to 18 years of age, in clinics in Sequim and Port Angeles.
“I’ve always loved working with children and adolescents,” Frankland said in a press release. “The ability to care for children from the time they are born until they finish high school is incredibly rewarding.”
Frankland received his medical training exclusively in the Pacific Northwest, graduating from Seattle Pacific University in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in science before spending three years as a behavioral specialist in clinical psychiatry at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
From there, he began his medical education at the University of Washington School of Medicine, graduating in 2018, and then embarked on a residency in pediatrics at Seattle Children’s.
“Children’s infectious joy and resilience made pediatrics the only choice for me,” Frankland said. “Parents can expect their child to be the center of the visit, that I will involve them in their healthcare and do my best to make the visit a positive experience.”
Frankland enjoys spending time exploring nature with his young family. They enjoy hiking, swimming, gardening and skiing.
“We also love cooking, baking, good food and connecting with the amazing farming community on the Olympic Peninsula,” he said.
