Dr. David Baltierra is currently the program director for the rural family medicine residency program at Harpers Ferry Family Medicine.
Upon completing medical school at the University of Michigan, Dr. Baltierra decided that in order to work with underserved populations, he should train in that environment. This led him to complete a family medicine residency of MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland and a fellowship in Maternal and Child Health at West Suburban Hospital in Illinois. His training included high risk and operative obstetrics, including cesarean deliveries, and the care of high-risk mother infant couplets.
With his newly acquired skills in family medicine and obstetrics, Dr. Baltierra spent four years in a migrant and community health center in Idaho, serving the needs of a rural Hispanic population while completing his commitment as a National Health Service Corps Scholarship recipient. His passion for teaching residents, especially to practice the full range od family medicine medicine in underserved environments, led him to return to an academic family practice strongly based in its community.
After wandering the country during his medical training and the world growing up as an Air Force “brat,” he ultimately feels at home here in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. He even has the opportunity to practice his fluent Spanish with soe of his patients. The mountains are not as high as in Idaho, but they’re always as beautiful and ever changing. Still caught between worlds, he and his family enjoys as much visiting naturally beautiful places in the U.S. as hopping on a plane or train and visiting family in Europe or NYC.
