Adam Courchaine is a Physician Assistant and founder of NuMed Direct Primary Care. He graduated with honors from UMASS Amherst in 1995 with a BS in Exercise Science, and began his career as an Exercise Physiologist. He then went on to work as a Pulmonary Technologist at Boston Children’s Hospital where he was exposed to the diversity of the medical field. He decided to continue his education at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) and graduated in 2006 with honors for Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS).
Adam has worked in Internal Medicine/Primary Care, Pediatrics, Geriatrics and Urgent Care. In 2012, he joined the Army National Guard as a PA. In 2015, he and his family moved to Colorado for more life experiences. He was deployed to the Middle East in 2017 and again to Kosovo in 2020. He continues to serve as an Aeromedical PA with an Aviation Battalion.
Adam believes that nutrition, preventative health and lifestyle choices are key to a happy and youthful life. He has found the changing healthcare scene in the U.S. over the past 15 years to be a struggle at times. More and more focus is being spent on inefficiently spending incredible amounts of money to please the insurance companies while patients are feeling more alienated than ever. Then came along the DPC model! This has become a passion of his and the reason he started NuMed Direct Primary Care.
In his free time he enjoys hiking, mountain biking, doing functional exercise programs and exploring the outdoors with his wife, son and daughter, and their 4 dogs.
