Meet Amy Beacom, M.D.
Dr. Beacom’s approach: “Staying active has always been important to me — in and out of the water. That’s why I’ve dedicated my practice to treating running and swimming orthopedic injuries. So my patients are able to stay active too.”
Dr. Beacom’s education: After earning her undergraduate degree at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota, Dr. Beacom completed medical school at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. She then went on to complete her residency at Methodist Hospital of Indiana in Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as a Sports Medicine fellowship at San Jose Medical Center in San Jose, California.
