Mariela Cabrera

Mariela came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the University of Florida (UF), where she majored in Anthropology and Biology and minored in Health Disparities. Before attending Icahn, she worked as a research assistant for the UF Neuroscience Department with a focus on ALS and worked as a Care Coordinator for the UF Mobile Outreach Clinic. She entered the MD program in 2018.

At Icahn, Mariela was accepted into the Primary Care Scholars Program, an immersive 4-year clinical curriculum for students dedicated to pursuing a career in primary care. She was involved in the Latin Medical Student Association both as a member and President of the organization. She dedicated time to the Family Medicine Interest Group and was co-leader of the organization for two years. She volunteered for the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP), the ISMMS student-run free clinic, as a Spanish interpreter, and the Human Rights and Social Justice Program. In addition, she worked on several research projects with a focus on reproductive health care.

Mariela would love to thank her family for their endless love and support, her friends for their laughs and a lifetime of memories, and her mentors for working tirelessly to provide guidance and reassurance every step of the way.

Mariela will graduate with her MD degree and continue her residency training in Family Medicine at the Boston University Medical Center.
