Dr. Joseph Christensen grew up in Springville, Utah where he enjoyed being active and running and obtained a scholarship to compete for Utah Valley University’s (UVU) Cross Country and Track and Field teams. After a year at UVU, he put his education and athletics on hold to spend two years as a volunteer missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Jamaica. Upon returning to UVU, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and conducted research in running biomechanics. He then attended Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine (RVUCOM).
During medical school, Dr. Christensen became one of RVUCOM’s Ultrasound Scholars, training other medical students in ultrasound techniques. He also engaged in the Community Outreach and Medical Mentors Club, mentoring high school students interested in pursuing medicine.
Dr. Christensen’s athletic and missionary experience inspired him to pursue medicine, and he chose family medicine to create lasting relationships with patients and optimize their health for better lives. His passions within family medicine include lifestyle and preventative medicine and sports medicine.
Dr. Christensen enjoys exercising, astronomy, snowboarding, hiking and spending time with his wife, three children and dog.
