Dr. Frances Ue is a Chief Resident in Internal Medicine at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) in Massachusetts.
She earned an Honors Bachelor of Science from Queen’s University in Ontario. A serendipitous decision to pursue a health and literacy internship near Varanasi, India, became the starting point for an incredibly meaningful nine years working in the field of international health as a community organizer, public health researcher, and now, as a medical professional. She received a Master’s of Public Health from Columbia University and has worked across sub-Saharan Africa and North America mainly in the areas of HIV prevention and treatment, antimicrobial stewardship, and health system needs assessment. Through her travels, she has found joy in learning with and from diverse, underserved communities and has sought opportunities to advance social justice. She attended Saint Louis University School of Medicine and trained in Internal Medicine at Cambridge Health Alliance in Massachusetts, where she is now Chief Resident.
Currently, she is honing her skills as a clinician-educator through the Harvard Macy Institute and researching missed opportunities for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) at CHA. Her favorite pastimes include trekking through the alps on the Tour du Mont Blanc and trail running in Cape Town.
I completed medical school at Sidney Kimmel Medical College (formerly Jefferson Medical College) in Philadelphia, PA and my residency training in Internal Medicine at George Washington University Hospital in DC. I then went on to compete a 1-year fellowship in Medical Education, also at GW and am currently practiting as a hospitalist in DC. Specific topics of interest include the development of hospitalists and reisdents as clinician-educators, mentorship in medical education, and the role of literature/the humanities in medicine.
