Traci Jurrens M.D.
Dr. Traci Jurrens is a board-certified internal medicine and cardiovascular disease specialist with Heart Consultants at Methodist Physicians Clinic Westroads. She graduated from medical school and completed her residency training at Creighton University School of Medicine. She later completed her fellowship training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Her pediatrician may have known before anyone else that Dr. Jurrens would grow up to be a doctor.
“Each year, at my annual check-up, my pediatrician would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up. Every year, I would respond the same – that I wanted to be a doctor,” she said. “Looking back, I think it was my love for science with its application to people that made medicine attractive.”
Dr. Jurrens credits her passion for evidence-based medicine in choosing her specialty – cardiology.
In her free time, she enjoys reading, exercising, spending time with friends and family, and playing tennis with her kids (she played tennis at Creighton).
