Thomas Bradford Fetherston

Thomas came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the Pennsylvania State University, where he majored in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. Prior to attending Thomas spent a combined six years in the United States Army and the Pennsylvania National Guard as a Combat Medic.

Starting in the MD program in 2018, Thomas became the leader of the Mount Sinai MedVets organization and began closely working with the departments of admissions and medical education. In addition to helping advise the development of the Institutional Partnership with the United States Military, he has volunteered his time mentoring service members interested in healthcare through Service-to-School, teaching medical students about veterans' health issues, and has had his published work used to help develop other programs around the country.

He would like to thank his family, friends, and many faculty members who have made this work possible and have supported him along the way.

Thomas will graduate with his MD degree and continue his residency training at Tripler Army Medical Center.
