“Doctor, Friend, Advocate”
Regina Fleming-Magit (aka “Gina” or “Dr. Fleming”) is a native San Diegan who spent her youth on the beach in La Jolla. As an undergraduate at UCSD she studied psychology, healthcare and social issues, and music. After completing her BA she spent several years competing as a professional triathlete before entering graduate studies in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University at North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she earned her Masters Degree in Public Health. She then went on to study medicine and completed her medical degree back where she started—at UC San Diego.
Dr. Fleming’s post-graduate medical training includes: internship in Pediatrics (UCSD), and residency in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine (UCSD). During her residency she discovered the field of College Health, which perfectly blended her interests in promoting healthy lifestyles and the importance of integrating physical and mental health care. She is board certified in General Preventive Medicine and has spent the past 20 years working with young adults in the college health setting, as a physician and Director of Student Health Services at the University of San Diego, UC San Diego, and as the Medical Director for Student Health and Counseling for the ten campus UC system. She continues to serve as Volunteer Faculty for the Preventive Medicine Residency in the Division of Family and Preventive Medicine at UCSD.
Throughout her career, Dr. Fleming has been involved with a variety of public health research studies and interventions to improve physical activity, healthy eating, sleep, immunizations and mental health. She is passionate about using evidence-based lifestyle interventions to improve the health and well-being of her patients.
Much as Gina loves working with young adults, she is truly excited to join a practice that allows her to care for patients throughout the age spectrum. She is thrilled to work in her hometown, and hopes to develop long-term partnerships with her patients. When not in the office, or spending time with her family, you might find her swimming at the La Jolla Cove or reading for her next book club (“Bookclubben”) meeting.
