About Katelyn E Flaherty

As a future physician-scientist training in public health, Katelyn is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between institutional and community medicine. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Emory University, she joined the University of Florida MD PhD Training Program in 2018. She completed her preclinical education at University of Florida College of Medicine and passed Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Exam. She is currently appointed as a Graduate Assistant in both the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Department of Environmental and Global Health. Her research goals are to evaluate and to improve prehospital care in low-resource communities. She specializes in global implementation science and recently earned a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship to support her work in Ghana.
