Karen Tenner, MD
Assistant Professor
Boston University School of Medicine
Dept of Family Medicine

MD, University of Massachusetts Worcester

Dr. Karen Tenner completed her undergraduate degree at Brown University and went on to pursue her medical degree at the University of Massachusetts. At UMass, Dr. Tenner led “Sidekicks,” an organization that establishes longitudinal relationships between students and pediatric patients with life-threatening conditions. She also conducted clinical research surrounding barriers to accessing perinatal mental healthcare. These experiences helped Dr.Tenner realize early on her desire to form long-term relationships with patients of all ages. Her work at Brown with the organization Project Health, which connects patients with fundamental resources to address the root cause of health issues, as well as her work with the Worcester Free Clinic Coalition further informed her about the importance of providing compassionate care to patients within the context of their lives. She is particularly interested in women’s health, adolescent medicine and mental healthcare.
