Lea Hoefer is a current 3rd year clinical resident in the General Surgery Program at University of Chicago Medicine. Prior to attending medical school at the University of Chicago, she attended Iowa State University and completed undergraduate studies in Political Science & Global Resource Systems. She is interested in how spatial data science can be applied to the field of surgery to identify how place impacts health & outcomes, both pre- and post-operatively, as well as how this information can be leveraged to drive location-specific changes in individual patient care, health systems structures, and local policy.
