Tonia Omotola Ogundipe

Tonia came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Columbia University, where she concentrated in Earth Science. Before attending Icahn, Tonia worked as a WIC clinic assistant in Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC and volunteered in her local day shelter.

While at Icahn, Tonia participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Program, the student-run free clinic as a chronic care senior and a mental health clinic senior. She also volunteered Human Rights Program, was a co-leader in the IcahnBeWell student group, and worked on multiple research projects including being a part of the Gen-CSF research group lead by Dr. Mercedes Perez.

Tonia would like to thank her family, friends, and multiple faculty members for giving me the tools and support to continue this journey.

Tonia will graduate with his MD degree and continue her residency training in Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
