Medical Director, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders
648 Beacon Street
Harvard Medical School

Dr. Ross was born and bred in beautiful New Jersey.  She was an undergraduate at Bryn Mawr College, where she graduated magna cum laude in biology, and then from Harvard Medical School. Dr. Ross trained in pediatrics (MGH) and then psychiatry (McLean), and did her last year of residency as a fellow at Harvard University Health Services. She worked at MIT from 1979 to 2002 as a psychiatrist, patient advocate, and administrative director of Health Education. From 2002 to 2007, she was Associate Director of the Adult Outpatient Department at Cambridge Health Alliance, specializing in women’s mental health issues and eating disorders. She is married to a pediatrician and has three grown children, all of whom have gone through a lot of school! Since July 2007, she has been the Director of Behavioral Medicine at BU Student Health Services. Working with college and graduate students is a tremendous opportunity—these are exciting and challenging years in a person’s life—and the times we live in are fast-paced and ever-shifting. She is committed to offering expert and compassionate care.  Dr. Ross has begun to transition from her position at Behavioral Medicine to her current position as Medical Director of our Center.  We are delighted to have her join us!
