Dr. Jennifer Childers, MD, PhD, is an internist and board certified dermatologist. She earned her PhD, in physiology at UTCHS in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1979, and then proceeded to medical school where she was elected a membership in the National Medical Honor Society. Dr. Childers completed her internship in internal medicine and residencies in Dermatology and was board certified in 1990. She opened a solo dermatology practice at Methodist and was actively involved in a traditional medical practice for ten years.
During the late 1990’s, Dr. Childers practice took a turn in direction as she herself began experiencing significant health problems and began to look beyond the traditional medical community for answers. In doing so became increasingly interested in the concept of ‘natural healing,’ not yet taught in medical school. Soon after she was able to resolve many of her own health issues through nutritional therapy, in which she quickly began incorporating into her own practice. The results that her patients experienced were so profound that she has continued her education in alternative therapies, blending a multiple healing arts within her practice.
