Maryam Sabetian, MD, is a family medicine physician at Valley Family Medicine. She was born in Iran and lived there until the age of 10. She and her family moved to Pakistan prior to migrating to the United States as refugees. In Pakistan, she had the opportunity to closely observe and appreciate the care provided by physicians and nurses to refugee populations through the United Nations. She took great interest in their vast knowledge of the human body, and the passion they displayed in their care. This ignited her desire to pursue medicine and to someday work to improve the health and welfare of others, especially those in dire need.
She and her family lived in Boise, Idaho, where she attended college at Boise State University (BSU) and earned her degree in molecular and cell biology. She participated in breast cancer research at BSU and completed a research internship at John Hopkins School of Medicine. She then attended University of Washington School of Medicine, where she was involved with several volunteering and community service projects. These experiences further developed her passion to be an agent for social justice in health care with an emphasis on vulnerable populations.
Dr. Sabetian is very happy to join the Valley Family Medicine residency program and to be a part of an amazing team of passionate and knowledgeable providers. Her specific interests in medicine include women’s health, reproductive rights, LGBTQ health and urgent care.
