Arbuckle Named Director of Native American Center for Health Professions

Madison, Wisconsin - Dr. Jacquelynn Arbuckle, clinical associate professor of surgery at UW School of Medicine and Public Health, has been selected to serve as the new director of the school’s Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP).

 

Jacquelynn ArbuckleArbuckle, a general surgeon who practices at multiple UW Health locations, is a native of Spooner, Wisconsin, and grew up on the St. Croix reservation.

 

She received her medical degree from the UW School of Medicine and Public Health in 1995 and then completed her internship and residency in surgery at the Lahey Clinic in Massachusetts. Arbuckle is board-certified in general surgery.

 

“We are delighted to have Dr. Arbuckle fill this vitally important leadership role,” said Dr. Robert Golden, dean of the School of Medicine and Public Health. “Our Native American Health Center is a highly valued program, and Dr. Arbuckle’s background, experience, and leadership skills will help accelerate the center’s progress.”

 

The Native American Center aims to recruit more Native students and faculty and improve their experience on campus; establish strong Native health educational opportunities; and grow the Native health academic programs. The school recently added an Oneida health-center elective for fourth-year students.

 

NACHP recently developed an Advisory Council that consists of tribal leadership from five of Wisconsin’s tribal communities: Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, Menominee Nation, the Ho Chunk Nation, the Stockbridge Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, and the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians.

 

In 2012, Arbuckle was a recipient of the UW-Madison Outstanding Women of Color Awards, in part for her successful efforts to diversify the general surgery faculty and surgery residency program in the School of Medicine and Public Health. That same year, she also received the Outstanding Educator award from UW System.
