Jules Madzia

Graduate Assistant

Professional Summary

I'm a sixth year MD/PhD candidate at the University of Cincinnati. My dissertation research uses qualitative methods to explore medical students' experiences with inequality in professionalization throughout their medical education. I focus on the impact that racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia during medical school have on students' short-term wellbeing and long-term career trajectories.

Additionally, I do clinical research on gender-affirming healthcare with the Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, and University of Michigan. I recently was Co-Principal Investigator of a community-based needs assessment of Cincinnati's transgender and non-binary community.
