Dr. Danielle Krol, a native of the Philadelphia area, earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Temple University.
Dr. Krol’s interests in Public Health, and the experience of observing medical practice in a third world country, has since sparked her interests to incorporate global healthcare into her practice. She pursued medicine in an international program, and graduated from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 2012 after spending 2 years of her Basic Sciences in Grenada and 2 years of her Clinical Clerkship in New York City, NY.
During her educational years, she received numerous awards for her involvement as Executive of the Student Government. She is the Founder of ‘The Hospital Foundation’ in Grenada which donates supplies from the United States to the local community hospitals in the West Indies.
Her involvement with the local community of Grenada is an experience that she takes great pride in, and the Global Health Initiative that SGU has provided her with has aided her in becoming a Physician with a diversity of experiences. Dr. Krol was inducted into the Gold Medal Honor Society in Medical School and again for her work in Humanism in Residency. She created the Council of Residents and Fellows for the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American College of Physicians, and serves as an Associate member.
Dr. Krol is a member of the ABC News Medical Unit at the National Headquarters in New York City. She has written many articles for the Health section of the Network, and works side by side with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Richard Besser and Medical Editor Dan Childs.
Dr. Krol has completed her Residency in Internal Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, and is currently a Hematology Oncology Fellow. She has plans to pursue a career as a Breast Oncologist, Global Health, Journalism and Medical Correspondence.
