Alumni-in-Residence: A New Doctor's Perspective on the COVID-19 Pandemic, with Dr. Gabriela Ulloa '15

What does a career in the health professions actually look like — particularly amidst a global pandemic?

Dr. Gabriela Ulloa ’15 is a first-year resident physician in pediatrics at NYU Langone, working at both Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and Bellevue Hospital. She was among the group of medical students who elected to graduate early from NYU School of Medicine to join internal medicine residents during the peak of the COVID-19 crisis in New York City. In addition to her extensive experience with the treatment of this new virus, Gabriela is passionate about global healthcare, immigrant healthcare, and pediatrics, with a focus on serving diverse populations.

Gabriela cultivated an attention to global healthcare while at Amherst, helping to implement the on-campus organization Project SALUD and working to establish the internship program that sends Amherst students to a general clinic in Lima, Peru, each summer. In her fourth year as a medical student, Gabriela returned to Peru to work at a women’s health clinic, conducting breast cancer research among indigenous populations.
