Raisa Yewah, MD
Raisa was born in Cameroon, West Africa, but moved to the US very young and grew up in East Lansing, MI. She studied Chemistry and French at Hope College in Holland, MI, moved to Ann Arbor and obtained a Master’s in Public Health degree at University of Michigan, and to round out her seemingly everlasting career as a full-time student, she obtained her MD from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. She has many interests - a few include traveling, eating out at various restaurants, baking (and eating her baked goods), participating in and watching sports games, and attending music concerts/festivals. If she was not destined to become a physician, Raisa would have definitely enjoyed being an unqualified traveling food connoisseur. Within PM&R, Raisa enjoys sports medicine, musculoskeletal/spine, and general PM&R. Fun fact, Raisa was a collegiate athlete, scoring goals during her 4-year run as a striker on the women's soccer team. She still plays, just has a longer recovery time.
Raisa chose Beaumont PM&R because of the friendly and tight-knit atmosphere amongst both residents and attendings. She felt it would be a great place to get comprehensive training in PM&R with the added benefit of learning about the private practice model as a resident.
