Rebecca Starks is a primary care provider at MCMC Internal Medicine. She is a certified physician assistant, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Basic Life Support in Obstetrics certified.

Starks received her B.S. in Kinesiology, with minors in Biology and Spanish, magna cum laude at California Polytechnic State University’s College of Math and Science in San Luis Obispo, California.

After working as a medical assistant at Cal Poly Student Health Center, Coastal Cardiology in San Luis Obispo, and Community Health Centers of the Central Coast in Atascadero, California, she received her Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree from Oregon Health & Science University’s School of Medicine in Portland, Oregon on the rural track, which prepares students to practice medicine in rural areas.

During her physician assistant training Oregon Health & Science University, she also mentored high school students from rural and underserved areas who were interested in pursuing careers in healthcare, performed health screenings on refugee and homeless patients and connected them with community resources.

Her general practice focus is on internal medicine. Starks enjoys building relationships with her patients, and partnering with them to manage chronic disease and maintain their quality of life. She believes no question should go unanswered and strives to explain diagnosis, tests, and treatment options without medical jargon.

During her physician assistant training in Portland, Starks fell in love with the Gorge, which she frequently visited on weekends. She wanted to relocate to a smaller community after graduation, so MCMC was a perfect fit. She loves spending time with family, particularly in the outdoors, where she enjoys camping, hiking, and running.

Starks is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Oregon Medical Association.
