Biography
William Markle, MD, is a native of western Pennsylvania and a 1973 graduate of Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine in Hershey, PA. He completed a family practice residency at the Medical College of Virginia in Blackstone, VA in 1976 and helped start the Mannboro Medical Center in an underserved rural area of central Virginia. Dr. Markle was in solo family practice in Mannboro until 1987, when he joined the Wycliffe Bible Translators. He served as the medical coordinator for the Indonesia branch of Wycliffe until 1994 doing primary care, teaching and community health work in Irian Jaya (now Papua), Indonesia. He received a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from Mahidol University, Bangkok in 1993 and a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers Health in 1997. In 1994 he joined the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Department of Family Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology as a student preceptor. He served as clerkship director for medical students, helped start a global health interest group and area of concentration and currently is a Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine. In 2002 he became the Program Director of the UPMC McKeesport Family Medicine Residency. He continues to see patients at the Latterman Family Health Center in McKeesport in addition to his residency duties. His interests include health care of underserved populations, global health, rural health and tropical medicine. This interest in global health has resulted in an ongoing project to improve health care in a remote area of Honduras and in work with disaster victims, including the Asian tsunami with the American Refugee Committee. He is married to the former Mary Margaret Pollock and they have four grown children.
