Kristen Marie Watkins

Kristen came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Georgetown University, where she majored in Human Science. She took one gap year, during which she worked as a medical scribe, and entered the MD program in 2018.

While at Icahn, Kristen participated in the Student Interest Group in Neurology as a co- leader, the MedStart Enrichment Program as a curriculum co-chair, and the LGBT Youth Pipeline Program as a board member. She also carried out translational research investigating biomarkers of Parkinson’s disease.

Kristen would like to thank her family, friends, boyfriend, and her many faculty and research mentors from Sinai and her alma mater who have made her medical education an incredibly rewarding experience, and who encouraged her interest in Neurology.

Kristen will graduate with her MD degree and continue her residency training in Neurology at New York University Grossman School of Medicine.
