Title: Resident Physician +Doctor/MD
Dr. Sandricka Collier is an OB/GYN resident in the second class of the Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI.
The middle of three children, she was born and raised in the city of Louisville, Kentuky.Dr. Collier obtained her bachelor’s degree in biology, with a minor in race and gender studies, from the University of Louisville. She went on to Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona., where she earned a master’s in bio-medical science. Returning back to the east coast,Dr. Collier attended medical school at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Growing up in an urban under-served area, Dr. Collier has always had a passion for serving those in communities that mimicked her own. As a medical student, she was able to transfer this passion into work by helping establish her campus’s chapter of the Student National Medical Association, an organization dedicated to developing clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians. While in this leadership role, she was able to co-organize a holistic health fair designed to serve the medically underserved as well as several mentor events that helped area youth develop a better understanding of the medical profession.
It wasn’t until her clinical rotations that Dr. Collier developed her passion for all things related to women’s health. She appreciated its holistic nature in addressing mind, body, and spirit, and balance between mentorship, continuity of care, and surgical practice. In pursuing a career in medicine and working diligently to help all women prioritize their health status, she hopes to work toward the elimination of health disparities, advocate for the underserved, take pride in community and work in every way to transfer that community love and pride into patient treatment and education.
When Dr. Collier is not hard at work, she enjoys all things related to University of Louisville sports, traveling, baking, movie watching, and spending time with loved ones.
