Brief Description

Dr. Bachmann received an AB in Economics from Harvard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2005 and her MD from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio, Texas, in 2009. Her postgraduate medical training included residency in internal medicine from 2009-2012 at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and fellowship in endocrinology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, Massachusetts, from 2012 to June of 2015. Dr. Bachmann has clinical expertise in osteoporosis, diabetes, and pituitary disorders and hopes to pursue a career in clinical investigation. Her clinical research interests include bone disease/fracture risk, obesity, insulin resistance, and metabolism. During residency, she studied predictors of fracture risk in men with prostate cancer on androgen deprivation therapy. During her endocrinology fellowship at MGH, Dr. Bachmann has conducted clinical research on bone density, strength, and fracture risk across the BMI spectrum (in anorexia nervosa, lean, and obese populations) under the mentorship of Dr. Karen K. Miller and Dr. Anne Klibanski. In addition, Dr. Bachmann has held a leadership role in an ongoing clinical trial at the MGH Neuroendocrine Unit investigating potential therapies for impaired bone density and strength in anorexia nervosa.
