Fiona Pat

Fiona is a freshman studying Neuroscience, Psychology, and Bioethics. A member of HMR’s Medical Humanities team, she explores topics involving the more nuanced, “human” aspects of medicine, such as philosophy and the arts. The quintessential Hopkins pre-med, Fiona aspires to advance medicine by disseminating research findings through HMR, and by conducting research at the med campus’s Snyder lab. She also hopes to bridge the gap between healthcare and the local community by volunteering at the JHH’s Adult Emergency Department, the American Red Cross, and SHARE. You can catch her in Brody tweeting the latest medical news, drawing Orgo mechanisms, or hunting for crab cakes around Baltimore.
