Angie Molina, M.D.
Undergraduate: University of Florida
Medical School: Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, specifically in Hialeah, Florida (a small town in the greater Miami area). My family immigrated from Colombia to Hialeah for a better life in the United States and they haven't left the area since (except for me, of course!). I attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida for undergrad (Go Gators!) and then went to medical school at VCU School of Medicine in Richmond, VA.
Being first generation in the United States brought some particular challenges growing up. Because of them, when I was a child myself, I knew I wanted to give back in some form to other children. It was during my undergraduate studies that I decided on going to medical school to pursue Pediatrics. However, life throws curve balls. In 3rd year, I quickly realized that I loved adult medicine, and all the complexities that come with it, just as much. I happily matched into Med-Peds at University of Maryland and cannot wait to begin this path and work with the patient population in Baltimore, MD!
Outside of medicine, I strive to do things that bring me joy. I love taking my dog out to the dog park and watch him play for hours. I also love to cook, watch TV (GoT, West World, the Bachelor, etc), go to the beach/river/lake, explore new restaurants, check out local breweries to taste all their craft brews, and meeting new people!
