Dr. Morgan enjoys the spectrum of pulmonary and critical care and is active seeing patients in the role of attending intensivist at Strong Memorial and Highland Hospitals, as pulmonary consultant at Strong Memorial, and in the outpatient setting as general pulmonologist and Director of the University of Rochester’s Lymphangioleiomyomatosis Clinic. She is fascinated both by the pathophysiology and management of the acutely critically ill patient, but also finds the challenges of navigating end-of-life care to be extremely rewarding. She feels honored to be involved in the lives of her patients and the trainees at URMC.
Dr. Morgan was born and raised in Rochester, New York but left for the west coast at the age of 17 to attend Stanford University. She completed a bachelor of arts’ degree in History before matriculating at the School of Medicine at University of California San Francisco. Tired of traffic, living in a shoebox, and being far from family, she returned to Rochester for residency training because of URMC’s focus on the biopsychosocial model of patient care. as well as by its legacy of excellence in medical education. Inspired by the clinical and academic excellence of the PCCM faculty and the warm and collegial atmosphere, she opted to remain pursue fellowship training in Pulmonary & Critical Care. During fellowship, she was recognized for excellence in resident teaching and was named as a recipient of the NIH training grant for her work in elucidating mechanisms of sepsis under the auspices of her mentor, Dr. Tony Pietropaoli. She was thrilled to join the faculty in 2008 and has served as an advocate for advancing education in Pulmonary and Critical Care, first as the associate director of the fellowship and then, as of 2019, as the fellowship director.
