Maura McLaughlin, MD
Loyola University

I was born in Washington, DC, but grew up in a small town in Illinois. I returned to DC for college, where I obtained a BS in biology and minor in theology. I then moved back to Illinois for medical school, where I enjoyed being close to my family. I first came to the University of Virginia for a family medicine rotation as a fourth-year medical student, where I was very impressed by the intelligence and enthusiasm of the residents and faculty, as well as by the department's commitment to teaching. I was fortunate to complete my residency here, and am grateful to be staying on for the faculty development fellowship.

I hope to continue to work in an academic environment in the future, and am looking forward to numerous teaching opportunities during my fellowship. I am greatly enjoying my clinical practice at Stoney Creek, a clinic in Nellysford, a small town about 40 minutes outside of Charlottesville. I have a particular interest in Maternal Child Health, and have begun work on an evidence-based resident resource in this area. I am also in the process of writing a review article on Neonatal Dermatology along with two other physicians in our department. I feel lucky to be part of a department made up of people who are committed to caring for the patient, and who also care about each other.

I recently married my husband Tim, who I met at UVA, one more reason I am grateful to have come here. We both enjoy travel and the outdoors, and recently returned from a trip to Montana. We love living in the Charlottesville area, with its lively music scene, restaurants, and hiking in the Blue Ridge mountains. I also enjoy reading, writing, and, most importantly, spending time with family and friends.
