Physician Fellowship Director 

Dr. Ursula McVeigh joined the Providence Alaska Medical Group in 2014. She is the Executive Medical Director of Hospice and Palliative Care and program director of the Providence Alaska Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship. She completed medical school training at Yale in 1999, internal medicine residency training at the University of Vermont Medical Center in 2002 and worked as an academic hospitalist until attending the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2008. She works clinically in the Providence Alaska hospice and palliative care programs and administratively works to expand access and education around palliative care support for seriously ill Alaskans in the hospital and community setting through program development and interprofessional educational programs.

Ursula was born in New York and has previously lived in Baltimore, MD, New Haven, CT and Burlington, VT. She was drawn to Alaska for its cultural diversity and for both urban and rural (and then very rural) populations and the creativity involved in helping people in such different environments. She greatly enjoys the outdoors and spends her time hiking, cross country skiing and exploring Alaska.
