Jorge Caballero, M.D.
Jorge was born in the Mexican colonial city of Morelia and grew up in sunny southern California before moving to the Bay Area. He met his college sweetheart, LeeAnn, as a senior at Stanford and they married while he was a student at the Stanford School of Medicine. Since he’ll be sticking around next year as a FARM Fellow, he’s earned the label of being a “Stanford Lifer” – and he’s all too willing share his knowledge of all the great opportunities Stanford has to offer. As a FARM Scholar, Jorge’s scholarly pursuits are driven by a desire to merge his interest in computing with his passion for medicine. His research focuses on improving anesthesiology and perioperative care by leveraging clinical data to catalyze translational research. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with friends, attending Stanford Football games, traveling, and day tripping to wine country.
Marie McHenry, M.D.
Marie grew up on the East Coast in Annapolis, Maryland. She went to Johns Hopkins University, earning a degree in biomedical and electrical engineering. The first of many adventures with her husband Rob was to head west to San Diego California, where he was stationed on a Navy Nuclear Submarine. Although trained as an engineer, she quickly realized that she was a little too social for that field and followed an opportunity into the financial services industry where she worked with retirement investment funds. After eight years in finance, in what was perhaps an early midlife crisis, she pursued her dream of medical school at Georgetown University School of Medicine. A little older and hopefully wiser, anesthesia was a clear choice and a perfect fit. After an internship at INOVA Fairfax in Northern Virginia and with fond memories of the west coast, she came to Stanford for anesthesia residency where she is currently a chief resident. Having chosen to pursue fellowship training in cardiac anesthesia, Marie will be heading to The Texas Heart Institute in July 2014. Who knows where the adventure will take her after fellowship, but she is hoping to come back to the San Francisco Bay Area. When not at the hospital, she can be found enjoying all that the Bay Area has to offer, including great wind, great weather, and great wine!
Matthew Wagaman, M.D.
Matt was born just down Hwy 101 in San Jose CA where his Dad came in the late 70’s trying to pitch the idea of an electronic medical record for dental offices. Given the size and expense of the personal computer at the time not many were interested and so the Wagaman’s moved to be near family in Utah which is where Matt grew up. After graduating from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology he spent 1 yr. working as a dialysis technician for DaVita Dialysis. During this time he had his first child, Elizabeth (Ellie, 7). He completed his medical degree at the University of Michigan and became an avid Michigan sports fan. Matt completed a Transitional Year Internship at St. John’s Hospital in Detroit. It was during this time in Michigan that Noah (5) and Rowena (Row, 2) were born. Although very fond of the mid-west, Matt and his family were searching for a warmer location to complete residency training and were immediately captivated by the idea of coming to Stanford. He feels privileged to be part of this great program and to represent his co-residents as a Chief Resident. Matt will be joining a private practice in Colorado Springs, CO beginning in July 2014. When he is not fulfilling his role as a parent and husband Matt enjoys watching and playing most sports, music, snow skiing, golf, and Thai food.
