Dr. Michelle Horn grew up in Laurel, MS, and has stayed true to her Mississippi roots by receiving her BS degree in chemistry from Millsaps College and her MD from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. She then completed internal medicine/pediatrics residency training at UMMC. After completing a pediatric chief resident year at UMMC, she has a dual faculty appointment in the Department of Internal Medicine and Department of Pediatrics. Her primary role is within the Division of General Internal Medicine where she enjoys caring for the primary care needs of Mississippi's citizens.
From an education leadership standpoint, she is the director of medical education for the Department of Internal Medicine as well as being the medical student clerkship director for third- and fourth-year medical students.
