Vineetha Mathew

Vineetha is a current M3 at Tufts University School of Medicine. Originally from Philadelphia, she graduated with a degree in Biochemistry from Temple University before moving to Boston. Her clinical passions include improving cardiovascular outcomes for women and maternal-fetal health. She conducts basic science research at the Mother-Infant Research Institute at TUSM where she studies pathologic mechanisms of placentation during pregnancy and has presented their results at domestic and international conferences. Studying the vascular changes that occur during pregnancy fostered her interest in women’s cardiovascular health, prompting her to get involved with the establishment of a comprehensive women’s cardiovascular center at Lahey Hospital. In addition to her medical interests, she also has a love for teaching, mentorship, and improving educational opportunities for students. Her past involvements include head tutor at a non-profit organization providing SAT tutoring and college prep to students in underserved communities. In med school Vineetha continued this passion by teaching summer pre-matriculation courses for incoming medical students and co-founding the Ultrasound Medicine Group, which advocates for the inclusion of hands-on ultrasound education into the preclinical curriculum. Outside of her educational pursuits she enjoys playing board games with friends or exploring the local food scene in Boston.
