M.D. Class of 2019

Hometown: Shiraz, Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Undergraduate Degree: Florida State University

Farnoosh Shariati graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in exercise science. As an undergraduate she was an active member of various community service organizations. Her love for service and passion to help others, especially the disadvantaged, led her to co-found a student organization, Hands of Hope, with a mission that focuses on helping people with disabilities. Hands of Hope went on to win the Student Organization of the Year award in 2012. For two years, Farnoosh had the opportunity to take part in a Traumatic Brain Injury Research at the FSU College of Medicine under the supervision of Dr. Jacob VanLandingham. In the summer of 2011, she had the great opportunity to embark on her first medical mission trip to Jamaica, where she assisted in providing care to the underserved people of the Clarendon parish. Seeing the lack of medical attention and the shortage of medical staff there motivated Farnoosh to start a fundraiser and contribute to the funding of future medical mission trips to the area. After graduation, Farnoosh started working as a scribe at the TMH Emergency Department, which confirmed her passion for medicine. She chose the FSU College of Medicine for its supportive atmosphere and its focus on producing patient-centered physicians.
