Dr. Maggie Burkhead

Alliance Medical Ministry is excited to welcome Dr. Maggie Burkhead as the new Medical Director of our medical clinic!

Dr. Burkhead received her BA degree in English, with a minor in Faith, Peace and Justice from Boston College. After 2 years teaching in a private secondary school she decided that her passion for helping people would find greater expression as a physician. She graduated from University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1997. 

Following medical school she served five years in the United States Navy as a Pediatric Resident and then as General Medical Officer. She was promoted to Lt. Commander before leaving active duty in 2002 in order to complete a second residency at UNC Chapel Hill. Following completion she remained at UNC as faculty.  For the past several years Dr. Burkhead has been in private practice.  Dr. Burkhead lives in Raleigh with husband Scott, and two mostly manageable dogs, Buddy and Bear.  "I am grateful for the opportunity to join the wonderful staff, clinicians, patients, and community of supporters at Alliance!"
