Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Dr. Braden has dedicated over four decades to the medical profession, with a primary focus on internal and emergency medicine. As the chief quality officer at UCHealth Parkview Medical Center since 2021, she oversees all safety and quality events for patients and employees at the hospital. Dr. Braden's role is pivotal in ensuring the institution's highest standards of care and service delivery. Before her current position, she was deeply involved in graduate medical education at the center from 2010 to 2021, where she developed the program from its inception into a robust system, offering one residency and four fellowships. Dr. Braden's tenure at UCHealth as the director of graduate medical education and the designated institutional officer between 2010 and 2021 also highlights her expertise and leadership in medical education.

In addition to her work at UCHealth, Dr. Braden has been an emergency physician with Southern Colorado Emergency Medicine Associates since 2009, demonstrating her enduring commitment to emergency medicine. Leveraging her former experiences in this area, she served as an emergency medicine physician at Doctor's Hospital of Michigan from 2008 to 2009.

In academia, Dr. Braden has been instrumental as an adjunct faculty member at Rocky Vista University in Parker, Colorado, since 2009. This position allows her to extend her impact on medical education beyond her immediate professional environment into the broader academic community. Dr. Braden's contributions to developing a highly effective graduate medical education program have facilitated a seamless transition for numerous young physicians and significantly shaped the future of the medical profession.

Dr. Braden's path to medicine was fueled by her passion for the field and determination to overcome personal challenges, including navigating through her husband's military career. Her journey began with a Bachelor of Science in medical technology and life science from Kansas State University in 1982, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Kansas City University in 2002, and an internal medicine and emergency medicine residency at POH Regional Medical Center in 2007.

Having come from a family with a solid academic background, Dr. Braden is proud of her upbringing and path to success. Looking ahead, she envisions retiring from her present position at her medical center within the next five years and relocating to a more serene location where she can continue practicing medicine as a rural physician.
