Prior to medical school, Tatia worked for three years at the North Dakota Department of Health as the state's Vaccines For Children Program Coordinator. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and now is participating as a fellow in Adolescent Medicine at the University of Illinois Chicago.
