Residents Shelbi Davis, MD Hello! I'm Shelbi Davis, a born and raised Midwesterner. I grew up in Sedalia, MO in a family of four, with an older brother who served in the Army. I attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City for my undergraduate studies, where I majored in Health Sciences with a strong focus on Social Determinants of Health and public health issues. During undergrad, I was able to work as an EMT and a home health aide. Kansas City offered me many amazing opportunities to volunteer and be a part of organizations to shape the health of underserved populations, such as the Veterans Community Project.I chose Family Medicine due to the relationships you can build with your patients. I also enjoy that being a Family Medicine doctor involves considering the physical, social, emotional, and environmental factors that impact the patient’s health. I love that Family Medicine offers ongoing opportunities to see a variety of cases. My special interests include Street Medicine and Addiction Medicine. I chose CoxHealth for the strong, full-spectrum training and wonderful people I met during the interview season. Everyone was so welcoming and made it feel like home. I am thankful and excited to continue my journey at CoxHealth!Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, trying new places to eat, watching shows, hiking with my boyfriend, and cleaning/organizing!
