Joined Primary Medical: 2011
Degree: Albany Medical College
Dr. Becky Wade was born and raised in southern California where her family continues to reside.
Dr. Wade studied mathematics and biology at the University of California, San Diego. She attended medical school at Albany Medical College in Albany, New York. There she met her future husband. She returned to warm southern California to start the Internal Medicine Residency Program at UCLA’s San Fernando Valley campus. Dr. Wade also completed her internship year there.
Dr. Wade took leave of her program to return to Albany, New York and to marry. While her husband was finishing his medical specialization, she did a year of Family Practice residency at AMC. The couple then came to California and Dr. Wade finished her internal medicine training. Following residency, Dr. Wade became a Kennamer Fellow at UCLA Medical Center. During that year, she taught medical students and residents, did research, made presentations of current articles and completed more study in women’s health and general internal medicine.
Dr. Wade then affiliated herself with the County of Ventura where she served both as a primary care physician and as a consultant for osteoporosis. She maintains her credentials as a Certified Clinical Densitometrist, as it relates to issues of osteoporosis, with the International Society for Clinical Densitometry. During her time at VCMC she served as Treasurer of the Medical Staff, an Attending Physician for the Family Practice Residency, and Chief of Internal Medicine.
She happily joined Primary Medical Group in May 2011 and will provide ongoing care in Internal Medicine with a focus on women’s health, geriatrics and osteoporosis. She most enjoys the practice of internal medicine because of the long and rewarding relationships it affords with her patients.
She is active in her children’s education and in the international organization Odyssey of the Mind, for which she has served as a team coach. In her spare time she enjoys hiking and sewing.
