Becoming a Physician and Education
Dr. Caitlin Tourje began her journey to becoming a physician at a young age. As a child, she would spend her time learning and watching her father operate. She knew very early on that she wanted to go to medical school to become a physician and help those in need. Dr. Tourje graduated summa cum laude from Concordia University Irvine and then enjoyed a year off traveling the world and spending time with family before beginning medical school.
Dr. Tourje attended medical school in Boston, Massachusetts at Tufts University School of Medicine. After graduation, Dr. Tourje completed her residency at the University of Virginia in the Department of Anesthesiology. She completed her fellowship in interventional pain medicine at Wake Forest University: School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Dr. Tourje greatly enjoyed her time at Wake Forest and was fortunate to be trained by many of the great leaders in the pain community.

Outside of Medicine
Dr. Tourje was born and raised in California. While she has spent many years in various parts of the country to attend school and complete her training, California has always been home.
