Lindsay Clark came to ISMMS from the University of Maryland, where she earned a B.S. in Biological Science in 2018. She previously studied English and completed a five-year enlistment in the United States Army as a signals intelligence analyst, Arabic linguist, and paratrooper. Following a research fellowship in a USDA lab, Lindsay started at Sinai in 2019.
While at Sinai, Lindsay helped lead advocacy efforts as a member of the Segregated Care Student Work Group, Medical Students For Choice Leadership Group, and Mount Sinai Hospital’s Vaginal Birth After Cesarean calculator task force. She published two peer-reviewed papers describing her medical education work in segregated care and climate change. Lindsay also acted as Editor-in-Chief for the student-run creative arts journal The Apothecary. A writer herself, the poetry and fiction she produced while at ISMMS have been nominated for awards and published in university and independent presses, both in print and online. Given her early passion for primary care and the broad spectrum of her projects, she naturally decided on a career in Family Medicine.
Lindsay would like to thank her husband, her daughter, her parents, her siblings, and her friends for their humor and love and for giving meaning to the most challenging parts of this experience. She would also like to thank the many faculty members at Sinai who fostered opportunities for her and who encouraged her work across disciplines.
Lindsay will graduate with an M.D. and continue on to residency training in Family Medicine at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA.
