About Lauren G. Outlaw, MDToggle accordion item
An obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Outlaw regards the patient-physician relationship as one of the most important relationships either person will have in their lifetime. She believes in working with the patient as a team to best optimize their health.
What Dr. Outlaw loves about obstetrics and gynecology is that it combines the two things she finds most enjoyable about medicine: continuity of care and surgery. The specialty gives her the opportunity to help make a positive impact on women both locally and internationally.
Born and raised in South Bend, Indiana, Dr. Outlaw returned to Northern Indiana after medical school to practice obstetrics and gynecology, doing so for three years before her desire to provide care internationally lead her to join the international medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Boarders, for which she served as a medical officer in Aweil, South Sudan. She also worked in Mae Sot, Thailand, at Burmese Refugee camp with the Shoklo Malaria research unit. She moved to Northern Virginia in 2014, spending five years practicing in Annandale, Virginia, prior to joining University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Group.
Dr. Outlaw attended Xavier University of Louisiana, majoring in psychology pre-medicine. While at Xavier, she participated in the chemistry and psychology clubs; Alpha Epsilon Delta; and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She spent her free time volunteering with her sorority and various other organizations. It was at Xavier where she learned that if one person fails everyone fails, a philosophy she carried with her as she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Xavier and matriculated to Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Medical school allowed Dr. Outlaw to combine her two loves—traveling and medicine. While in medical school, she volunteered in Guatemala and Honduras. Her international mission work continued as an obstetrics and gynecology resident at Indiana University. She returned to Guatemala for a month, working as an obstetrician-gynecologist in Santiago during her fourth year of residency.
Currently, Dr. Outlaw resides in Falls Church, Virginia, with her dog, Baxter. She spends her free time doing mission work in Haiti and volunteering with the Virginia Medical Corps; Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; and her church, Alfred Street Baptist Church. She enjoys traveling, reading, eating at new restaurants, and spending time with her friends and family.
