Dr. jamie Deering

Vice President of Medical Affairs

Dr. Jamie Deering is a native of Randolph, Wis., and dedicated 19 years to caring for Dodge County residents as a family medicine physician before joining Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam as Vice President of Medical Affairs (VPMA) in August 2020. In this role, Dr. Deering oversees the MMC-BD Medical Staff, serves as a liaison between providers and leadership, and ensures patients and staff receive the best care possible.

Dr. Deering’s passion for health care began after an 8th grade knee injury derailed her dreams of earning a scholarship to play college basketball. While one future path was blocked, another was cleared as surgery and the ensuing rehabilitation process introduced her to medicine and a life dedicated to patient care.

Dr. Deering earned her Bachelor of Science at Viterbo College in LaCrosse, Wis. before earning her medical degree from Wisconsin Medical School in Madison and serving her residency at Waukesha Family Practice Residency in Waukesha, Wis. The chance to truly get to know people and care for them from birth to end-of-life inspired Dr. Deering to practice family medicine.

Dr. Deering and her husband Tim live in Beaver Dam, Wis. and have nine children. She enjoys camping, singing karaoke and playing cornhole.

“Serving as VPMA at Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam is a unique opportunity,” Dr. Deering said. “This is my home. My family, friends and my former patients live here and I want the best care for us all locally. As a part of Marshfield Clinic Health System, we will continue the legacy of high-quality care by focusing on patient and community needs and growing services.  Working together we will transform into a regional hub that provides excellent care locally.”
