Growing Healthy Alaskans for Over 60 Years
Welcome to APG
Matthew Serna, MD
Matthew Serna, MD graduated from MIT with studies in Brain and Cognitive Sciences before obtaining his medical degree in 2013 from the University of California School of Medicine and completing his Residency at the University of Washington/ Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Serna is a fluent Spanish speaker and an accomplished pianist, though he enjoys absolutely, all forms of music. Also, if you get the opportunity, you ought to ask him about the official criteria that define what an espresso are.
He grew up in a health-conscious family and had an early draw to all things medical originally going to college wanting to go into biomedical engineering and research. It didn’t take long before he realized he liked talking to people far more than talking to lab rats!
He and his wife are relocating to Alaska where they are setting roots for the start of their family and are looking forward to becoming more a part of the community and learning to skate ski.
Most recently his Residency through Seattle Children’s Hospital has had him in Seattle most of the year and four months split between outpatient pediatrics in Anchorage and the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Regional Hospital located in Bethel.
Dr. Serna's worst childhood illness? Certainly my most significant illness was a bout with salmonella that almost landed me in the hospital when I was a toddler. But most memorable to me is nearly every episode of food poisoning I've suffered through ‐ those foods never sit the same way with me again!
During his free time? I like to read fiction, hike, travel, cook, and, of course, spend time with my beautiful wife. What I would like to do in my free time – Nordic Skiing! (did I mention I grew up in sunny South Texas?)
