Having graduated from Warren-Walker School in 2012, Quinn went on to Saint Augustine High School where he was an outstanding scholar/athlete. Quinn’s goal has always been to become a doctor, and his journey began in 2016 when he was accepted to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, America’s first research university and home to nine world-class academic divisions working together as one university. Quinn's success at Johns Hopkins included his participation in the University's School of Nursing Center for Innovative Care on Aging focusing on behavioral interventions for older adults and qualitative work on police relations in underserved communities through the Department of Political Science.
He was awarded several research fellowships during his summer months, one being with the Purcell Laboratory, American Heart association summer Research at the University of California, San Diego. Another was a ten-week summer research fellowship concentrating on laboratory studies and techniques. Quinn's generous spirit was also evident in his volunteering: at the Gilchrist Hospice Home in Baltimore, where he provided companionship to those patients in their final stages of life, and in San Diego at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, he shadowed cardiovascular and orthopedic physicians.
Quinn graduated with honors and a B.A. in Public Health from Johns Hopkins in May 2021. He will be attending Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC, having recently received his "white coat" at a ceremony held at the School. He says his personal philosophy is that "health begins in the community, and ultimately, I believe that a physician should seek to improve the wellbeing of their patients in addition to fostering healthier and happier communities. In the same vein, a physician's duty does not end once a patient leaves the clinic. I aspire to become a physician who understands the far-reaching connection between medicine and the community at large!"
All of us at Warren-Walker School remember Quinn with fondness and wish him all the best on his path to a medical career...another Gull soaring!!
