Dr. Kara Tabor-Furmark graduated with honors from Harvard University, dual majoring in cognitive neuroscience and Spanish language. She attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine before pursuing both her adult psychiatry residency and child and adolescent fellowship at UCLA.
As part of her training, Dr. Tabor-Furmark spent time in specialty clinics focusing on neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, bipolar spectrum disorders, and anxiety/OCD/tic disorder, among others. While in fellowship, she worked at a non-profit organization offering mental health services to foster youth and families. She was the recipient of the UCLA Gertrude Rogers Greenblatt Award in Child Psychiatry, given to one fellow annually noted for their “deeply humane commitment to children and families requiring psychiatric care.” She remains at UCLA as an associate physician at the UCLA Child and Adolescent Mood Disorders Clinic (CHAMP).
Dr. Tabor-Furmark strongly believes in a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to patient care, and is so excited to be part of the team at Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers. After having grown up in Hawaii, she could not be happier to have escaped the East Coast cold for sunny Los Angeles. She enjoys spending her free time with friends and family, playing with her dogs, traveling, yoga, running and spending as much time in the ocean as possible.
