Bridget graduated with honours from the University of Notre Dame, where she was a varsity athlete, in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Behaviour and a minor in Poverty Studies. She matriculated to the Duke University School of Medicine (DUSOM) in the fall of 2019 and will graduate in spring of 2024, after which she hopes to pursue dual board certification in Internal Medicine and Paediatrics.
Bridget’s research interests relate to U.S. healthcare policy and its implications on access to and the cost and quality of care, particularly for historically marginalized and resource-poor populations. She hopes to work in large-scale systems-level reform alongside her clinical practice.
Outside of academia, Bridget enjoys participating in college athletics, baking, reading, spending time with family and friends, and discovering new music. She is heavily involved in ongoing curricular reform at DUSOM, where she is a member of the Primary Care Leadership Track and works with the Benefits Enrolment Centre to help community members access public and institutional resources.
Bridget’s MSc thesis will focus on the effects of the Affordable Care Act on child health outcomes via Medicaid Expansion.
