Megan Smith, MD 

PGY2- Public Health Track

Medical School: Creighton University School of Medicine


Extending a lineage of residents in our program from the Creighton University School of Medicine, Megan may be the first such resident we’ve had embarking on a dual career as psychiatrist and pirate! From her humble beginnings on a rural California orange farm, Megan swash-buckled and pillaged her way academically through college at Whitworth University, earning several awards during her time with the “Whitworth Pirates.” As she quipped in her personal statement, “although there were zero pirates involved, during my Psychiatry clerkship…I felt at home.” During her time sailing the high seas near Omaha, NE, she was awarded the Medical Dean’s Magis Scholarship, an award for her commitment to service of disadvantaged populations.
