    Sarah is a third-year medical student at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. She plans to pursue an integrated residency in plastic surgery and recently completed a research fellowship at Yale’s Department of Pediatric Surgery. 

    As a member of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Medical Student Education (CMSE) for the last two years, she has led the national recruitment and organization of the first CMSE Student Resource Task Force and has managed the publication of several educational resources for aspiring surgeons. Her interest in medical student education has also led her to serve as an author for the 'First Aid for the USMLE Step 1’ review series and she is now a member of their New Educator Scholarship Training program. She also serves as a reviewer for Medical Science Educator, a peer-reviewed journal of the International Association of Medical Science Educators. This year she will serve as the Resource Development Coordinator for the Association of Women Surgeons (AWS) National Medical Student Committee and she is also a member of the AWS Clinical Practice Committee.

    Along with her interests in surgery and medical student education, Sarah is passionate about healthcare policy and reform. She has served on the American Medical Association (AMA) Committee on Global and Public Health, has served two terms on the Committee on Bioethics and Humanities and is actively involved with the AMA Medical Student Section. Her clinical interests are in the investigation of socioeconomic disparities in emergency general surgery outcomes and her basic science interests include intestinal failure and short bowel syndrome, where she studies the role of serotonin and acetylcholine in the regulation of intestinal mucosal homeostasis. She is also a Juilliard-trained violinist and is interested in the role of music therapy in the pediatric population.
