Dr. Hannah Rando is a postdoctoral research fellow in the division of cardiac surgery at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Rando received her medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and her Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Prior to her time in the cardiac surgery laboratory at Johns Hopkins, she completed the first two years of her general surgery training at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Dr. Rando will return to Vermont in July to complete her general surgery residency, and ultimately plans to pursue a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. Her research interests include optimization of patient outcomes in extracorporeal life support, development of novel repair strategies for structural heart disease, and expanding equitable access to cardiac surgical care in low- and middle-income countries.
