Kirsten Johnsen Martin, DO, FAAFP

Director of Osteopathic Education

Dr. Johnsen Martin joined our faculty as the Director of Osteopathic Education after nearly 12 years in practice at a Lancaster City-based federally qualified health center, where her roles included family physician, site medical director, and chief medical officer.

Dr. Johnsen Martin is a graduate of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Lancaster General Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. Her areas of clinical interest include full-spectrum family practice, with a focus on family-centered obstetrical care, women’s health, and addiction medicine.

After graduating from Franklin & Marshall College and prior to attending medical school, Dr. Johnsen Martin worked as a community health worker and health educator, serving migrant and seasonal farmworkers. She has volunteered on mission trips to Nicaragua, Honduras, Thailand and Tanzania, and she continues to travel frequently to Nicaragua collaborating on projects focused on poverty, social justice, and global health.

Dr. Johnsen Martin served as a community preceptor for residents, medical students, and advanced practice clinician students, and is excited to now be leading the osteopathic curriculum for the residency program. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, camping, hiking, traveling, sampling international foods, cooking, perfecting her artisan bread, and working with her husband to renovate their 1930s home. She resides in Lancaster with her husband and four children.
