Dr. Chiu grew up in Southern California and attended A.T. Still University for medical school which allowed her to move to Washington State for her clerkship rotations. She then completed her internal medicine residency at Virginia Mason in Seattle. During residency training, Dr. Chiu worked on several quality improvement projects including identifying bottlenecks in patient workup and delays in treatment for giant cell arteritis. Her career interests include clinical medicine and musculoskeletal ultrasound. Outside of medicine, she enjoys strength training, tennis, long distance running, and spending time with her spouse and family.
"I had the opportunity to rotate with the division of rheumatology at UW as a visiting resident. The attendings and fellows were incredibly welcoming, and I was impressed by the quality of their education and unlimited opportunities. Being able to stay in the Seattle area is an added bonus!"
"I love the longitudinal care in rheumatology, while caring for a medically complex population especially during times of uncertainty. I find the field of rheumatology especially exciting with its changeable nature, evolving new treatments, and remarkable blend of internal medicine, immunology and musculoskeletal disease."
