Carrollwood Day School is proud to feature one of its notable alumni, Morgan Gamble 16'. Morgan is currently pursuing her dreams in the medical field, and her journey has been nothing short of impressive.
After completing her education at CDS, Morgan attended Boston College, where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in medical ethics. She graduated in 2020, and not long after, she enrolled in the Master's in Biomedical Sciences program at Duke University School of Medicine, which she completed in 2021.
Morgan's passion for medicine and patient care led her to work as an EMT at a pediatric office after completing her studies. She is now preparing to start medical school at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in July.
Morgan's love for medicine started at an early age, with her mother being a dentist. She was fascinated by science and the human body and knew from an early age that she wanted to become a doctor. She explored several specialties, from OBGYN to Anesthesiology and Trauma Surgery, but ultimately found her passion in pediatrics.
Morgan credits CDS for equipping her with both academic and life skills that she continues to draw upon in her career. From learning to hold the door for others to the IB learner profiles, Morgan values the lessons she learned at CDS. She is still in touch with many of her teachers and often goes back to say hello, almost seven years after graduating.
Morgan Gamble 16' is a shining example of the excellence that CDS instills in its students. Her journey to becoming a medical doctor is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and the exceptional education she received at CDS. We are proud of her accomplishments and look forward to seeing her continued success in the medical field.
"I attended CDS from fourth grade through high school and truly loved going to school there. I remember being taught to hold the door for those behind you, a skill I notice has come in handy in life! I can still recall some of my IB learner profiles and can still sing the school song to this day. CDS equipped me with both the classroom and life skills I draw upon today and will continue to use as a medical student. I still keep in touch with many of my teachers and go back to say hello even almost 7 years after I graduated. CDS will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so grateful that my third grade tour with Mrs. Schweitzer led me to a place that would support me through my education and for all of the years beyond."
