PEM Fellows

  • Inbar Plaut

    Inbar Plaut, MD


    Inbar was born and raised in Boston. She stayed local for college at MIT where she studied Materials Science and Engineering. While there she conducted translational research, developing self-healing polymers that could be used as surgical glue and siRNA “microsponges” for cancer drug delivery systems. She also became a Certified Pirate, having taken courses in Sailing, Fencing, Pistol, and Archery. For medical school, she moved to Worcester to attend UMass as a Blackstone Bear where she developed her passion for pediatrics through her Longitudinal Preceptor Program in the Pediatric ED. She volunteered at the Akwaaba Free Clinic and participated in the Dominican Republic Batay Health Initiative. She then moved to Washington, DC with her husband, Max, and son, Adiv, for pediatric residency at Children’s National Medical Center. She found that she loved emergency medicine and taking care of diverse patient populations. Inbar also developed an interest in machine learning and clinical informatics and hopes to one day make using an EMR as intuitive as an iPhone.  In DC she enjoyed visiting all the Smithsonian museums and especially the baby panda at the National Zoo. She is excited to be returning home to UMass to be the inaugural PEM fellow.
