Dr. Dorsey received her B.S. degree in Biology in 1994 from Bucknell University; her M.D. from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 2001; and her M.P.H. from The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2005. She completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center and a residency in Occupational and Environmental Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She is board-certified in Internal Medicine and in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. She maintains professional society affiliations with the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
Currently, Dr. Dorsey is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, Occupational Health Program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Responsibilities include patient care, teaching, research and resident supervision.
Current research interests include the development and implementation of data collection systems and public health registries and identifying new methodologies for assessing exposure through biological monitoring, for example collection of samples in the home which are sent by mail and the use of alternative matrices such as breast milk. Populations of interest include first responders, healthcare and laboratory workers and veterans.
