Penn State Hershey medical student profile - Sarah Shea

Sarah Shea studied psychology at Amherst College in Massachusetts. During her time in college, Sarah studied abroad at New York University in Florence, Italy.

A native of West Hartford, Conn., Sarah was a faculty member at Tabor Academy in Marion, Mass., for close to three years before starting medical school in Hershey. She is currently doing research through the Psychiatry Sleep Lab at Hershey Medical Center, is certified in CPR and First Aid, and served on the Student Council for the Class of 2014 last year.

"My main reason for coming to the regional campus was the opportunity to receive one-on-one training with very good physicians," said Shea. "This experience is giving me a lot of responsibility and hands on training that I am not sure I could receive elsewhere."
