About Julia A. Bulkeley, MD

Dr. Bulkeley was born and spent most of her childhood in South Africa. She moved with her mother and sisters to North Carolina at age 15. She completed her high school in High Point, NC. Dr. Bulkeley received her undergraduate degree from High Point University in Biology and Chemistry (B. S. Summa Cum Laude). She went on to earn her MD with honors from Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Dr. Bulkeley completed her orthopaedic residency at University of Louisville, after which she completed a fellowship in pediatric orthopaedics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston TX. Her fellowship was split between the Texas Children’s Hospital, and the Houston Shriners Hospital where she received broad-based exposure to all aspects of pediatric orthopaedics.

After completing her training Dr. Bulkeley started practice at Carilion Clinic Orthopaedics in Roanoke, VA where she worked in western Virginia’s only clinic offering dedicated pediatric orthopaedic services. She also served as an Assistant Professor of surgery at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and was involved with the INSIGHT High School Mentoring Program as a Student Mentor.

Dr. Bulkeley has made several trips to Guatemala as part of a recurring medical mission. These trips were focused on pediatric orthopaedic cases; especially developmental hip dysplasia and club foot.

Outside of orthopaedics, Dr. Bulkeley is an avid equestrian, competing regularly at a regional and national level. She also enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, horses and dogs.
