Title: Resident Physician + Doctor/MD
Dr. Urania Davis is an OB/GYN resident of The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI.
Dr. Davis earned her medical degree from the Georgia Campus-Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, Ga., where she also received her master’s degree in biomedical science. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in biology from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn.
Dr. Davis was born in Dominica, where her love for medicine first developed while visiting her dentist. The impact that the healthcare providers had on her community was so impressionable that she, too, wanted to pursue a career in this area. She migrated to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands at the age of 8 where she lived and ultimately graduated from high school. Before beginning medical school, Dr. Davis experienced a life-changing trip that solidified her passion to become a physician. On a medical mission trip to Kenya, she had the opportunity to treat the Massai people at a local clinic. After observing how limited medical care was for the people of Kenya and how she was able to inspire hope in her patients, Dr. Davis knew that her calling was definitely in medicine.
Before starting medical school, Dr. Davis met and married her husband whom she met at her local church in Norcross, Ga. During medical school, they were blessed with two boys who continue to be the joy and adventure in their lives. She attributes her success in medical school to her husband and supportive family who were and continue to be a constant source of encouragement and support.
She views medicine as not only a career that she is passionate about, but also as a privilege to serve others. She is motivated by the following verse: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But, the greatest of these is love.”
