Jillan Rowbotham, D.O., a board certified internist, was first exposed to medicine while volunteering for Hospice of Lansing during her third year of college, and it was a life-changing experience that made her want to become a doctor. She went on to earn her medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She received her training in Internal Medicine at Main Line Health’s Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania where she was one of the top residents in her program. “Dr. Rowbotham remains one of our best residents. She is absolutely dedicated to the well-being of her patients and is a wonderful communicator with patients and their families.” Dr. Rowbotham’s schedule began filling up weeks in advance with women patients and this gave her the experience and solid grounding to focus on women’s health. Her professional interests include: gastroenterology, weight management, nutrition and food policy.
Dr. Rowbotham completed her undergraduate work at Michigan State University, earning a B.S. in Human Biology with High Honors. Prior to completing her residency training, Dr. Rowbotham volunteered to travel to Guayaquil, Ecuador where she assisted in reconstructive surgeries.
