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