Jennifer Spicer is a clinician educator whose dedication lies in serving both patients and learners. Her journey into the realm of infectious diseases began during her time as a student at Emory School of Medicine in 2007. This initial interest spurred her to pursue a master's degree at Rollins School of Public Health. Deepening her commitment to the field, Spicer opted to continue her training at Emory, completing a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in infectious diseases.

In 2019, she joined the Emory School of Medicine faculty, a decision she describes as the right one due to Emory's pioneering work in the field of emerging infectious diseases. The institution has been at the forefront of responding to various outbreaks, from treating Ebola patients to researching diagnostics and therapeutics for COVID-19.

Spicer's clinical practice is based at Grady Memorial Hospital, and her most significant source of satisfaction comes from educating future health care professionals. She plays a pivotal role as an associate program director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program and holds multiple educational leadership positions working with medical students, residents, and fellows.
