Senior Fellows

Michelle Amit, DO, MA

Michelle is a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellow at The University of Chicago Medical Center. Coming from Florida (Go Gators!), Chicago was a bit of a climate change for Michelle, but she survived her first winter here! She has long been interested in pediatric hematology/oncology and ethics and loves being here at the University of Chicago! Michelle received her masters in bioethics degree concurrently with her medical degree and is excited to be doing a clinical medical ethics fellowship now. She has two cats that provide plenty of entertainment and loves finding new coffee shops around the city.

Through the MacLean Fellowship, Michelle hopes to delve deeper into her interest in pediatric assent (particularly in oncology clinical trials) and allocation of resources as it pertains to chemotherapy medications.
