Where are they now? | Janice M. Sinclair, M.D.

Janice Sinclair, then.

Class of 1996

Janice Sinclair’s favorite class in medical school was ophthalmology, so it’s no surprise that she chose a career in comprehensive ophthalmology. Sinclair completed her residency at the University of Minnesota and received the Richard T. Olson Best Teaching Resident Award from the Department of Ophthalmology during that time.

Sinclair has been in private practice since 2000 at the Northwest Eye Clinic locations in Plymouth, Wayzata, and Maple Grove, Minnesota; she also maintains an active interest in teaching as a clinical instructor for the University. Janice Sinclair, now. Her academic interests are medical ophthalmology, refractive surgery, and oculoplastics. “Med school and residency actually do go by very quickly,” she says. She advises current students to always put family first and smile a lot. One of Sinclair’s best memories of medical school is meeting her husband, Bryan Nelson, who is now in family medicine at Camden Physicians in Maple Grove. They currently live in Plymouth and have a one-year-old daughter. In her spare time, Sinclair enjoys music, traveling, and digital photography.
