Patricia Lebensohn, MD


Teaching IM in Psychiatry Residency
Also speaking with Mari Ricker & Noshene Ranjbar


Dr. Lebensohn grew up in Argentina, where she completed her medical, psychiatric, and family therapy training. After immigrating to the US, Dr. Lebensohn did a family medicine residency at St. Joseph's Hospital in Syracuse, NY.

In 1993, Dr. Lebensohn joined the faculty at the University of Arizona Department of Family and Community Medicine and has been teaching medical students and residents since then. She completed a fellowship in faculty development and Integrative Medicine in 2005. She created and developed several innovative programs in the family medicine residency: a longitudinal behavioral health program, 4-year residency options for UA family medicine residents in sports medicine, fellowship, and the Integrative Family Medicine program. Dr. Lebensohn served as the family medicine residency program director for 8 years and is presently one of the mentors for the Societies program at the UA College of Medicine.

Personally, she has two adult children and three grandsons and loves to be physically active: training for triathlons, touring on her bike with her partner Steve, or practicing yoga. She enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, making vegetarian dishes. She has a passion for teaching physicians in training to be true healers and to find joy in the art of medicine.
