Dr. March Thompson has had a world-wide array of experiences that have formed an exceptionally strong foundation and steadfast passion in medicine and women’s health based on education, skill development, and a commitment to excellence. 

From Dr. Thompson’s early undergraduate years at The Colorado College, her eager interest in science soared; she earned numerous prestigious scholarships throughout her time there, completing her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology.  Before pursuing advanced degrees, Dr. Thompson immersed herself in the field of health as a hands-on research assistant in settings including rural Ecuador, the University of Washington, and the University of Colorado Health Science Center.  Dr. Thompson continued her studies internationally at the University of Dublin, Trinity College where she earned her MB, BCh, BAO Medical Degree with honors achieved in her five-year course. 

Returning to the United States, Dr. Thompson completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency and training alongside our own Physicians and Certified Nurse Midwives at Baystate Medical Center, where she also served as Chief Resident for a year.  During her residency, Dr. Thompson devoted her time to continuous learning and making meaningful contributions within the health community, achieving certification in Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery and participating in numerous research projects, protocol developments and professional presentations in the field of women’s health.  She earned Excellence in Student Teaching awards for her dedication to developing not only her skills, but those of her medical student colleagues as well.  In her final year of residency she was the recipient of the Practicing the Art of Medicine award, Compassion in Medicine award, Resident Teacher of the Year award, and the AAGL Recognition of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology award.

Parallel to Dr. Thompson’s passion for clinical excellence is her commitment to making individual connections with patients through a foundation of effective communication.  She finds great satisfaction in being able to share knowledge, knowing that the dynamic nature of healthcare requires constant learning not only from scientific advancements but also from patients’ experiences, questions, and circumstances.

"I most enjoy spending time with my patients so that I can understand and prioritize their goals, while practicing the evidence-based medicine that I have learned through my formal education and training, and continue to learn as new information becomes available."

Dr. Thompson's clinical interests include contraceptive management, gynecologic surgery and complex obstetric care; she also has advanced ability in written and conversational Spanish.  When not in the office or at the hospital, Dr. Thompson spends her time outside with her family, enjoying trail running, hiking and mountain biking, as well as cooking and gardening.
