Dr. Milt McColl graduated from Stanford University in 1981 and Stanford Medical School in 1987. While he was attending medical school at Stanford he was also playing professional football with the San Francisco 49ers and the LA Raiders. He has two Super Bowl championship rings from his playing career with the 49ers, along with his Stanford medical degree. He completed his internship at Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA in 1989, earning his license to practice medicine.
Dr. McColl then spent the next 25 years in the medical device industry, initially as a Medical Director and eventually becoming President, CEO, a venture capital partner/investor and an entrepreneur. He was involved in founding numerous successful early stage medical device companies in the Bay Area during his business career.
During this time, he kept his medical license and skills current by managing clinical research, volunteering at a bay area free clinic, and reading medical literature extensively. After a successful career in business, Dr McColl decided that his passion remained in treating patients. To “tune up” his clinical and patient treatment skills, he retired from his CEO position in 2016 to fully commit his time to completing a three year residency program with Stanford Family Medicine in 2019. He has been practicing Family Medicine since then, treating patients from 1 day old to 104 years old. He recently joined The Village Doctor team as an adult medicine provider. As a former professional athlete he has extensive experience in Sports Medicine. He also has particular interest and experience in Women’s Health and Family Planning. He has lived in the Bay Area for over 45 years and continues to be very involved in the local community and Stanford activities.
“Unlike most medical practices, at The Village Doctor there is no limit to the amount of time doctors are able to spend with their patients. So much of a healthy life relies not only on understanding one’s physical condition and laboratory results, but also one’s sense of wellbeing… and it takes time to understand that. Preventive medicine is also extremely important to a person’s long term health. I am thrilled to be practicing medicine in an environment where I can take as much time as I want and need with every patient to discuss all aspects of their health care and wellness.”
