Farrah is a MD/PhD student at Penn State Medical College where she serves on the MD/PhD Recruitment and Admissions Committee. Currently in the PhD part of her training, she is pursuing studies in immunology at Penn State and the National Institutes of Health. As a scientific researcher, she has been published in the prestigious journal, Nature, for her work in pulmonary regenerative medicine. In medical school, her reflective essay about one of her patients awarded her the selective John W. Combs Memorial Student Award, which is given to medical students whose writing demonstrates compassion and empathy, “out-of-the-box” thinking, and reflects not only the patient’s experience of living with an illness but also their life as a person.

As an undergraduate, she served as a student representative at Penn’s Pre-Professional Career Services for law, graduate, and medical school admissions and was an Executive Editor for Synapse, Penn’s undergraduate biomedical journal. After graduating, Farrah worked for Penn Alumni Recruitment, interviewing over 50 prospective applicants for University of Pennsylvania.
