Dr. Emily-Rae Singh joined the faculty as associate director in 2014 after practicing for several years in full-spectrum, solo rural private practice, including operative obstetrics. Prior to this, she worked for two years in Washington at a Community Health Center that specialized in caring for underserved immigrant populations. Her main passions in medicine are in prenatal and maternity care and adult inpatient medicine. She also has a passion for teaching obstetrical and bedside point-of-care ultrasound skills.
In 2018, Dr. Singh transitioned from a full-time faculty position into a part-time academic hospitalist role. This transition allowed her to pursue a Master’s Degree of Education in Health Professions through John’s Hopkins University, to develop an in-depth point-of-care ultrasound curriculum for the residency, and to spend more time with her two young daughters. As a hospitalist, she enjoys mentoring resident physicians on the inpatient service, teaching bedside ultrasound skills, training residents to perform common inpatient procedures, and continuing a full-spectrum inpatient practice including obstetrics.
In her free time, Dr. Singh enjoys hanging out with her family, growing an urban food forest, biking, playing piano, and learning taekwondo. She is also an avid reader and a happy mother of two little girls.
