Sam came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2018, directly from The College of New Jersey, where she majored in biology and played softball.
While at Sinai, Sam volunteered with the COVID-19 workforce, First Generation Students organization, and the Harm Reduction Clinic. Additionally, she promoted medical student wellness as a Practice Enhancement, Engagement, Resilience, & Support (PEERS) mentor and the chairperson for Icahn Be Well.
Sam was a radiology student group leader for three years and spent the past year working as a reading room liaison for the radiology department. While at Sinai, she published multiple papers and abstracts and is graduating with a distinction in research.
Sam would like to specifically thank Dr. Stern, Dr. Margolies and Dr. Halton for their endless advice and support during her journey to radiology. She would also like to thank her family and friends who have been there along the way.
Sam will graduate with her MD degree and attend Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for her transitional year and NYU Grossman School of Medicine for her diagnostic radiology residency.
