    Cara Black, MD

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other

    Bio Dr. Black was raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and completed her undergraduate studies at Bard College where she majored in biology. After college, she joined Teach For America and taught for two years as a 12th grade physics teacher in the South Side of Chicago. Dr. Black then attended medical school at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where she continued to advocate for kids? education and health on a national level as a White House intern in 2016. During the clinical years of medical school, Dr. Black realized her passion for surgery and was especially fascinated by free flap reconstruction. She therefore spent a dedicated year studying autologous breast reconstruction outcomes and lower extremity microsurgical techniques within the plastic surgery department at Georgetown. During her last year of medical school, Dr. Black did an away rotation at Stanford and was attracted to the welcoming community and dedication to research and international volunteering. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, Barre workouts, hiking, kayaking, traveling, art museums, improv comedy, tea, and relaxing with family and friends. Dr. Black is the oldest of four sisters, one of whom works in the wine industry in the nearby Napa Valley.
