About Me

Dr. Paul German is an emergency medicine physician at Altru and finds it gratifying to provide care for truly sick patients, especially the patients in which interventions in the emergency department take immediate effect. He is excited to have an impact on the Grand Forks community, a place that has been his home throughout college and his years in medical school. In his free time, he enjoys being with his wife and children at the lakes in North Dakota and Minnesota. Dr. German is a UND athletics fan, especially football, where he was a linebacker from 2006-2010, a Minnesota Vikings fan, spends time woodworking and relaxes watching movies.

Philosophy of Medicine

"I often see patients on some of the worst days of their lives, this pushes me not only to care for the patient's medical needs but for the patient as a whole."
