Shane Swanson, M.D.

I grew up in West Central Minnesota about two hours west of Minneapolis, where I was active in sports, mainly football and track. I went to the University of North Dakota and also the University of Minnesota Duluth for college obtaining a B.S. degree in Biology and minors in German and Chemistry. I attended medical school at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine in Duluth concentrating on Family Medicine. For the last two years, our class transferred down to the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis.

After medical school, I moved to Redding for the residency program at Mercy Medical Center. I graduated in the summer of 2005. I started moonlighting at Hilltop Medical Clinic in September of 2004 during my residency program. I continued my work there while I practiced Primary Care/Family Practice Medicine in Red Bluff for a little over a year.

In November of 2006 I joined the Hilltop Medical Clinic group, and I am glad to be part of such a positive team.

My six year old son and I enjoy going for bicycle rides, BMX races and camping. I also ride and race mountain bikes in my free time and go to the gym.
