Hopper Kipp 2024

Kipp Hopper, MD (he/him)

Position: PGY-1

Undergraduate: Quinnipiac University
Medical School: Frank H. Netter, MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University

Kipp grew up in Forked River, NJ and received a B.S. in Biomedical Science with a
Minor in Global Public Health from Quinnipiac University. After working as an
emergency room scribe in the early stages of the pandemic, Kipp returned to Quinnipiac
to pursue his MD, where he was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
During this time, he also pursued research in obesity medicine and bariatric surgery to
better understand how social environments can psychologically impact patients with
obesity. He served in regional leadership roles through the CT Public Health
Association, CT State Medical Society, and Choosing Wisely Campaign for High-Value
Care. His work with refugees and asylees in New Haven, CT was especially meaningful
in identifying public service as an essential and meaningful component of his future
practice.

Kipp’s primary interests include health equity and advocacy, obesity medicine, and
medical humanism. He is excited to come to Hasbro Children’s to pursue a career in
which advocacy plays a direct role in patient care outcomes. Outside of the clinical
setting, Kipp enjoys reading and writing fiction, performing on the harp, and playing
nearly every kind of game with anyone who can stand his corny sense of humor.
