Allison Vise earned her MD from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. During her third year of medical school, she was chosen to be a member of InterACT, a selective, longitudinal, ambulatory care-focused clerkship. She also served as the leader of a student group that trains medical students to be doulas for women undergoing pregnancy terminations. And, she was a primary care provider, Spanish to English interpreter, and leader of all medical student education for EHHOP, the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership, Mount Sinai’s free, student-run clinic. She was awarded by the medical school for her work partnering with chronically ill children and their families, and she presented nationally on research she conducted studying risk factors for poor maternal functional status in the early post-partum period among a cohort of low-income women in East Harlem. Prior to attending Mount Sinai, she earned a BA from Princeton University, where she majored in Anthropology, and earned minors in African-American Studies and Global Health and Health Policy. For her Princeton senior thesis, she studied norms surrounding sexual and reproductive healthcare provision in the US, and conducted ethnographic research at a reproductive health clinic in Washington, DC, where she also served as a Spanish to English interpreter. Prior to medical school, Allison spent time volunteering in rural healthcare centers in Bolivia, and she conducted research with the NYC Department of Health, co-authoring two papers examining mental healthcare provision for Rikers Island inmates, both of which were published in the American Journal of Public Health.
