First Year Fellow
Jenniffer Herrera, M.D.
Dr. Herrera is originally from Panama City, Panama, where she received her medical degree at the Facultad de Ciencias Medicas y de la Salud at the Universidad Latina de Panama in 2008. She completed two years of medical internship before becoming licensed as a general physician in her home country in 2010. Dr. Herrera is a native Spanish speaker.
Dr. Herrera decided to pursue further training in the United States after taking a brief detour from her medical career by working as a paralegal at a civil rights and disabilities law firm in the Washington, D.C., metro area. She then completed pediatric residency in 2015 at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ. She is currently pursuing sub-specialty training in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Rochester. She is also a fellow of the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program at the University of Rochester.
Being new to the Rochester area, Dr. Herrera has enjoyed exploring New York State’s beautiful parks and flea markets in her free time. She is a Washington, D.C., sports fan by default and roots for Capitals hockey and Nationals baseball. She looks forward to flying south for vacation during the winter.
