Dr. Anne Pereira Shapes Medical Education and Patient Care
Some of Anne Pereira’s, MD, MPH, most important mentors and role models have been physician-educators. They inspired
her, an internal medicine doctor, to build a career that combines caring for patients and teaching the next generation of physicians to do the same.
“I am fortunate to have the opportunity to practice clinically, take care of patients one- on-one, and work with students one-on-one. I am able to step back and look at how to make changes to improve the education for the many students who graduate each year,” she says.
By teaching, Dr. Pereira knows she’s having an impact on the medical care that legions of others receive.
“I feel really honored and thankful to have the opportunity to work with and mentor students. They are really bright, capable people who are going to be the next leaders in academic medicine,” she says.
