Professional bio

Kelly Pugh, MD, is an internal medicine resident planning to pursue a fellowship in hematology-oncology. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology of Global Health at Georgetown University and attended medical school at the University of Virginia. She is currently interested in how other medical comorbidities are associated with the development of myeloproliferative neoplasms. 

During college, Dr. Pugh studied abroad in China, where she explored methods of disease control and prevention in both urban and rural provinces. She worked as a scribe in an emergency room for a year prior to attending the University of Virginia School of Medicine, where she was involved in research projects in GU and GI oncology as well as palliative care education. She is so thankful for the clinical training at Vanderbilt provided by the breadth, volume and complexity of pathology within a supportive work environment.
