Kristen Larimer, BA

Graduate Medical Education Coordinator

kristen larimer

My name is Kristen Larimer, and I am one of the graduate medical education coordinators in the internal medicine and transitional year residency programs. 

I have been a proud LVHN employee since 2010. I have spent nine of those years working in graduate medical education. While health care was not my first career path, I can tell you it’s the field I plan to retire in. Being a part of this program is very important to me. It’s a position that I value greatly and am incredibly passionate about. I love being involved in resident education and doing all that I can to make residents’ lives easier. I have a wide range of responsibilities in my role, but enjoy the following things most: recruitment events at medical colleges, recruitment season (there’s nothing I love more than meeting you all) managing the department finances, evaluation compliance, orientation onboarding and alumni verifications. I’d say of all my daily tasks, the most rewarding responsibility I have is planning the graduation for our residents. There’s nothing I hold closer to my heart than watching our residents learn and grow in our program, and then be able to plan the event you all look forward to.

I grew up in a small town in New Jersey before moving to the Lehigh Valley with my husband, children and German shepherds. I love all things outdoors, including walks, camping, hikes, picnics, bike riding with my family, and lounging in my pool.
