Adriana Ramirez, MD, MPH

Chief Resident

Medical School: Medical University of North Carolina


I am originally from Maracaibo, Venezuela. I moved to the US when I was 8 years of age and grew up in the Southeast US primarily in South Carolina and Georgia. I went to Emory University for undergraduate education and attended the Medical University of South Carolina for medical school. I completed a two years of post-doctoral research fellowship at UVA during my research time and received a Masters in Public Health with a focus on Health Policy from the Harvard School of Public Health. I enjoy traveling to remote parts of the world, drinking good wine, and an outdoor enthusiast particularly through trekking, mountaineering, and rock climbing. I am interested in Endocrine Surgery and Academic Global Surgery. I believe in equitable access to surgical care domestically and worldwide and understanding the implications of policy changes for surgeon workflow and patient care.
