Alison Yarp, MD, MPH

Physician. Writer. Lifelong Learner.


Hello! I am a physician consultant with a passion for educating and mentoring. I graduated from Emory University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree, double majoring in Biology and Anthropology/Human Biology. I then received my MD from the University of Texas Long School of Medicine and Master of Public Health from the University of Texas School of Public Health, graduating in 2019. After completing an intern year in psychiatry, I realized that I wanted to make a broader impact and decided to pursue other areas of medicine. Currently, I am applying to preventive medicine and public health training programs, while freelancing as a consultant and writer. My primary interests include medical trainee wellbeing and mentorship, mental health awareness, and suicide prevention. I enjoy working on projects and creating content in these areas, especially for educational or advocacy purposes.
