Dr. Clara Lu

Clara Lu is pursuing her fellowship in General Internal Medicine at McMaster University. She completed medical training at McMaster University following undergraduate studies in piano performance and behavioural neuroscience at McGill University.

Since 2018, Clara has worked with a committed team of residents to develop the elective Social Medicine Rotation for the Internal Medicine residency program at McMaster. This experience continues to engrain her passion for health promotion among vulnerable patient populations. 

Clara plans to anchor her career in social medicine through clinical practice in addictions medicine and Indigenous health, as well as research on racial disparities within Canadian healthcare. Building on her experience with the Social Medicine Rotation, she aims to promote social medicine as a core component of all levels of medical training.
