Dr. Alyssa Burcham is a fellow mid-westerner coming from Iowa after receiving her Bachelor of Science degree and veterinary doctorate both from Iowa State University. She was drawn to the fast-paced feel and wide array of cases seen on emergency medicine throughout her time working at a referral hospital in vet school. She is thrilled to be able to pursue that passion after moving to Kansas City. Her favorite part of working ER is constantly seeing new types of cases and being able to provide top-quality care, treatments, and diagnostics.
Dr. Burcham shares her home with her boyfriend Ryan, a derpy hound dog named Abraham, and two trouble-maker kittens named Finkle and Einhorn. Away from work, she spends her time planning her next travel adventure, finding all the new places to eat, indoor rock climbing, and puzzling.
