Heather Clouse, MD

Associate Program Director (Sioux Falls)

Dr. Clouse’s Midwestern roots run deep, having grown up on a ranch in rural South Dakota. However, her interest in international medicine has taken her far beyond South Dakota’s borders to practice medicine in Asia. Her experience of working on American Indian reservations, along with underserved populations in China helps give our residents unique insights into patient populations they may encounter in their future practice.
