Amy Rogers Filsoof, MD
Dr. Amy Rogers Filsoof was born and raised in Tucson and attended Catalina Foothills High School. She moved to Los Angeles to complete her undergraduate degree in Neurosciences at USC followed by her medical degree at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago. She then moved to the west coast for her residency in Internal Medicine at Stanford University where she developed a passion for primary care medicine and met her husband, Darius Filsoof, who was also a resident physician at Stanford.
She was honored to be selected as Chief Resident of the Internal Medicine residency program at Stanford and stayed on for an additional year in this educational and supervisory role. She subsequently stayed on as a Clinical Assistant Professor in Primary Care and Population Health at Stanford. There, she served as co-director of the Cardinal Free Clinics, a group of free clinics that serve disenfranchised patients throughout the California Bay Area, as well as being a core member of the Ambulatory Care Excellence (ACE) program at Stanford, a program that prepares physician trainees for careers in ambulatory medicine.
She was sad to leave the group at Stanford but joined her husband at UCLA, who was completing a 1-year fellowship program in Interventional Pulmonology, serving as a Clinical Assistant Professor in Hospital Medicine from 2022-2023. Her time as a hospitalist helped her to better understand the clinical challenges that patients face as they return home after a hospital stay.
She is excited to return to Tucson to care for the community she grew up in and to take over her father, Dr. Alan Roger’s, practice. She loves the Arizona Wildcats, exploring the outdoors, and being a new mom to son, Miles.
