Presenter: Samantha Wang, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine
Stanford University

Samantha Wang received a B.A. with distinction in Molecular/Cell Biology in 2010.  She then enrolled in medical school at Yale University, earning both an M.D. and a Masters in Health Science in 2015.  While at Yale, Samantha served as a leader for the Yale Women in Medicine Interest Group, and was named a Farr Scholar in Research Excellence.  Given her leadership skills and her superb clinical performance, we were absolutely delighted when she matched at Stanford in 2015.  As a resident, Samantha has thrived as a clinician and as a class leader. She helped create – and now leads – the  Stanford Women in Internal Medicine interest group, and she serves on the Stanford GME Women in Internal Medicine Committee.

Samantha was also a recipient of the prestigious Julian Wolfsohn Award, and she was one of three members of Stanford’s 2016-2017 Medical Jeopardy team.  Samantha’s current research focus is on the side-effects of new targeted therapies in lung cancer, and she plans a career as a clinician/clinical researcher in Hematology/Oncology. She was a Chief Resident for 2018-19.
