This is home, these are my people. My name is Sara McKinney and I am an OBGYN physican at BIDMC. I am originially from San Diego, but have always considered Boston a second home. My mom's family is originally from Peru and she immigrated to Brookline at the age of 22. We eventually moved to San Diego, but life has brought me back on numerous occasions.
In June of 2019 I finished my OBGYN residency at BIDMC. Residency is hard. Learning to be a physician is physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. But each day that I walked thorugh the doors at 330 Brookline Avenue, I knew I was receiving the best training and surrounded by the most exceptional health care providers. I am so grateful to the nurses, hospital staff, attending physicians, and resident physicians who helped me get through the most beautiful, meaningful and painful experiences of my life, you have helped me become the kind of health care provider I have always dreamt of being.
I am so proud and grateful to have joined the OBGYN HMFP faculty here at BIDMC after graduating. It truly is a privilige to provide care to our patients who have taught me so much and to work along side such dedicated staff. It is an honor to fundraise for BIDMC and its surrounding community, thank you for your support!
Team BIDMC is running to support a variety of programs, including the Cancer Center, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Klarman Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Annual Fund, kidney disease research, and Bowdoin Street Health Center's Healthy Champions Program. Several of our runners are also supporting our Needham, Milton, and Plymouth affiliates. Thank you for your support!
