Megan Stobart-Gallagher, DO
Associate Residency Director
Assistant Professor

Hometown: Upper Chichester, PA
Residency: Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia
EM Passion: There are a lot of things I love about EM, but the thing that keeps me coming back are the patients. Not always the critical stabilization, but those moments when I can actually sit and get to know them, hear their stories, and look at life from their perspective.
Teaching Passion: Trying out whacky new ideas for teaching that I come up with on post-it notes in the middle of the night, or while riding the train into work. I also just LOVE the moment when a resident succeeds at something for the first time. The glow of a resident who gets their first intubation or central line and finally accepts that they are were they are supposed to be is an absolutely stunning moment.
Hobbies / Interests: Music, Philadelphia sports, Hokies football, pretending to be a runner while listening to the Peloton app outdoor runs.
