Dr. Malcolm is double board certified in allopathic and osteopathic Family Medicine with a certificate of added qualification in Sports Medicine.
Dr. Malcolm attended medical school at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) and in addition to her studies volunteered at a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya during that time. She completed her Family Medicine residency in Augusta, Georgia during which time she was awarded the prestigious American Medical Society of Sports Medicine Resident of the Year Award and Georgia Academy of Family Practice Resident of the Year Award among 6 additional awards.
Many physicians opt to further their training by completing extended programs called fellowships. Dr. Malcolm completed her Sports Medicine fellowship at the University of Notre Dame/South Bend Fellowship program. Shortly after she was hired as the head team physician for the University of Notre Dame football team and later became the head sports medicine physician for Kansas State University. In 2016, she moved to Alaska to start McKinley Orthopedic and Sports Medicine.
Here at McKinley Sports Medicine, Dr. Malcolm enjoys seeing patients of all ages and caring for the North Star Borough high school athletes on the sidelines. She is trained in nonsurgical orthopedic care (overuse injuries, arthritis, scoliosis, etc.) and sport related primary care (concussions, sport induced asthma, incontinence with exercise, etc.). She performs in office procedures such as osteopathic manual therapy, dry needling, diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound and ultrasound guided injections. She also sees patients for preventive care (preparticipation physicals and exercise prescription) and regenerative medicine (platelet rich plasma and stem cell injections).
Outside of work Dr. Malcolm is a mother of two wonderful children and loves spending time with her chocolate Labrador. From a young age she was always involved in athletics and has been an avid runner for years. She ran Division I cross country and track & field at Bucknell University and has continued to enjoy running recreationally. She also enjoys skiing, biking, hiking, and kayaking. She frequently volunteers her time on the high school sidelines and other sport events. You may catch her at a game! In addition to event coverage, keeping sports medicine current in Fairbanks is a priority for Dr. Malcolm. She has been working to update the concussion policy for the North Star Borough and hopes to continue to make a difference for her patients and the community.
