TMC Seminar: “Hearing God’s Voice in Our Academic Lives,” Tamara Fitzgerald, MD, PhD

Friday, February 14, 2020, 12PM | Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities, and the History of Medicine

Tamara Fitzgerald is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pediatric Surgery at Duke University.  Her academic focus is in global surgery, surgical capacity building, and cost-effective, quality biomedical devices for low-middle income countries. She works with pediatric surgeons in sub-Saharan Africa to increase training and support for young surgeons, thereby improving children’s access to surgical care. Access to surgical care world-wide is a pressing problem, affecting millions of individuals.  The solution to this problem lies in changing the way we view low- and middle-income countries, setting aside the missional mindset and adopting strategies of mentorship and empowerment.

She received her B.S. and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering and her M.D. from Boston University.  She completed a general surgery residency and fellowship in pediatric surgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital.  She can be contacted at Tamara.Fitzgerald@duke.edu.
