Dr. Leveque is a board-certified comprehensive ophthalmologist and a UW clinical assistant professor. In keeping with her belief that a career in medicine requires a lifetime of learning, this year she is pursuing additional training in uveitis with the department chair.
She joined the UW faculty in fall 2008 after serving three years as clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan. In addition to earning her medical degree from Duke University, Dr. Leveque received a master's degree with honors in public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a focus on patient education and prevention of eye diseases.
