Carrie Tamarelli, M.D.

Chief Resident
Class of 2022
University of Michigan Medical School


I have lived in Ann Arbor since arriving as an undergraduate engineering student in 2009. After working on several biomedical projects, I applied to medical school for the opportunity to collaborate directly with patients to address the concerns that affect their lives. I am interested in the holistic (biopsychosocial-cultural) approach to wellness, and I chose this residency program for its balanced training in psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and neuromodulation. When not in the hospital or clinic, I enjoy listening to podcasts and audiobooks as well as walking on trails with loved ones and cooking new recipes.
