Tara Shrout, MD, MSc is a first-generation college student who was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky. She developed an early fascination for medical research, attending summer camps and volunteering with STEM programs in rural Kentucky during middle and high school. She attended Vanderbilt University for a double-major in molecular biology and political science, and then returned to Kentucky for medical school where she was elected AMA State Delegate and helped create the Kentucky Medical Student Outreach and Leadership Program. During medical school, Dr. Shrout was granted an NIH TL1 award to support one year of cardiovascular research. She is now completing her internal medicine residency at Boston Medical Center in Boston, MA and working with the Framingham Research Study and AMA-RFS MA Governing Council. Dr. Shrout is grateful for a running friend and colleague who recently connected her with the AMWA and looks forward to learning from our organization.
