Megan Rose Curtis was born in St. Louis, MO. Curtis received her undergraduate degree at Santa Clara University and her master’s degree at the University of California, San Francisco. For her graduate coursework, she traveled to Zambia to study HIV and maternal health outcomes. Her life-long love of clinical medicine started when she attended medical school at Tulane. Curtis first became interested in populations affected by the opioid epidemic when she received her training in internal medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. She completed her fellowship in infectious diseases through the combined Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women’s Hospital program, spending the second year as the Brigham and Women’s Hospital HIV fellow which included intensive training in the outpatient management of HIV. She is currently supported by the BU-CHART T32 Research Training grant with the co-mentorship of Benjamin Linas and Andrea Ciaranello.
