Amythest GauthierI completed my residency here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and I have been a faculty member with the Department of Family and Community Medicine since 2021. I love working with patients of all ages and backgrounds to help them achieve their wellness goals. I am especially passionate about women’s health and maternal childcare, with a special emphasis on dyadic care in my clinical practice.

My research interests are focused on quality improvement strategies to enhance care for women, expectant mothers and families, in both a dyadic care model and traditional settings. I currently serve as a clinical advisor with the Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center and the Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics on a project called Care2: Care for Mothers at Well Visits. I am also a member of The Ohio State University Primary Care Kids Quality Improvement Committee.
