He graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 2001, and completed his residency at Swedish Medical Center where he served as Clinic Chief in his final year of residency. He was in private practice in North Seattle for many years before joining Northwest Hospital and the University of Washington's primary care group. He continues his affiliation with Swedish Medical Center, Northwest Hospital, and the University of Washington. He has received numerous awards both from his peers in the medical profession and his patients, and values most the personal relationships he has fostered over the years with his patients. "The key to top-notch patient care is to understand the nuance of the individual and adjust your care accordingly. This is best achieved through time and getting to know patients on a personal level." Personal Side of Dr. Mark Lacambra Dr. Lacambra came to medicine circuitously after careers in both Architecture and Education. "I cannot imagine becoming a physician without those layers of life experience. They allow me to relate and empathize with my patients on many levels. Architecture taught me to view things analytically and to follow a process. Education gave me the training and experience to communicate effectively and establish strong relationships with people. I still love both of those endeavors, but medicine offers the best and most satisfying mix of both." He remains active in architecture, especially in architectural art and sketching, and with Outward Bound, a leader in experiential education. Beyond the scope of his practice, he is active in the medical community, serving as the representative for outpatient physicians at Northwest Hospital, and as Medical Director for both Heartland Home Health and PIMA Medical Institute. Outside of medicine he enjoys music and the arts, especially as performed by his wife and children, and working on their home-made rustic cabin in the Cascades. He has coached his kid's sports teams for many years and volunteers medical services in the community on a regular basis."
