Dr. Jennifer White, a 1998 graduate of the College of Medicine’s Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences, is one of 10 medical residents nationwide to be named a Laughlin Fellow by the American College of Psychiatry.

Each year the college selects as fellows third-, fourth- and fifth-year medical residents from the United States and Canada who are deemed likely to make significant contributions to the field of psychiatry.

Dr. White currently serves as chief resident in psychiatry at the University of Iowa. After graduating from the Burnett school with an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology, Dr. White received her M.D. at the University of South Florida. There, she received various awards including the Chairman’s Award for Psychiatry and academic achievement awards recognizing her as one of the top two students in her class.

She has participated in clinical research, including studying post-stroke psychiatric and cognitive changes, as well as research in medical education, primarily related to psychiatry clerkships.

Dr. White developed and staffs a student-run psychiatry clinic at the University of Iowa and is a member of the team “Code Greens” that participates in local fundraising events for mental health.

Born and raised in Orlando, Dr. White is the daughter of Dr. Roseann White, associate director of the Burnett school.
