This month, Surgical Outreach for the Americas (SOfA) recognizes Dr. Molly A. McCormick for Excellence. Dr. McCormick has planned and coordinated anesthesiology activities for our surgical mission trips to developing countries in Central and South America. Her knowledge, work ethic and concern for the welfare of others makes her a leader in the Washington University community and a valued friend of SOfA.
A critical component of SOfA's field surgery program, anesthesia creates a "sleep-like" state for SOfA patients to prevent pain and mental trauma during the hundreds of surgeries performed by SOfA's volunteer doctors and nurses.
Dr. McCormick, thank you so much for your hard work and commitment to improving the health and lives of so many adults and children!
Dr. McCormick joined Washington University School of Medicine in 2006 where she quickly established herself as an exceptional clinician and leader. She is currently the Clinical Director and Anesthesiology Director of POD4, She is a graduate of University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine 6 year combined BA/MD program. She trained in anesthesiology at St. Joseph Hospital in Syracuse, NY and then completed a year of specialty training at the University of Maryland in Baltimore.
