Summary

James Conniff, MD, grew up in Connecticut. He studied history at Yale University, where he completed his pre-medical requirements while taking a year off to perform in a collegiate a cappella singing group. He earned his medical degree from Columbia University and completed his residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Family Medicine & Community Health, where he focused on global and community health as well as the care of LGBTQ persons.

Conniff's affection for the Midwest and its winters grew steadily during his time in Madison, and when he met his partner Carson, a South Dakotan, he decided to stay here for good. Following residency he completed a fellowship in research at UW-Madison, while earning a master's degree in public health and practicing full-spectrum family medicine. Then the outdoors called and he and Carson decided to move to Duluth in the fall of 2016 when he joined the faculty of the Duluth Family Medicine Residency Program. During his free time he enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, canoeing, reading, cooking and gardening.
