Quinn Bott is an accomplished Commissioned Officer with the U.S. Public Health Service and trained pharmacist. Quinn is currently pursuing his M.D. at the F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine within Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU).
Quinn Bott completed his Doctor of Pharmacy at Northeastern University in 2013, at which time he accepted full-time employment with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Quinn served as Staff Pharmacist to more than two thousand inmates, leveraging his expertise to provide everything from vaccinations to directly-observed medication therapy. During this time, Quinn spearheaded a first-of-its-kind pharmacy-driven vaccination clinic, and even served as both an interim Chief Pharmacist and Health Services Administrator when needed.
During the end of 2014 through 2015, Quinn Bott traveled abroad with the Monrovia Medical Unit in accordance to a Ebola Response Mission. While in Liberia, Quinn deployed as a Staff Pharmacist to execute Presidential directives to provide hope and patient care to the country. He soon became an invaluable part of the team, assisting with Safety, Planning, Logistics, and Information Technology needs, in addition to his traditional job function.
In 2015, the American Society for Health-System Finalists awarded Quinn Bott the CEO’s Award for Courageous Service. That same year, he also earned the AMSUS Humanitarian Assistance Award. Quinn also holds two PHS Hazardous Duty Awards.
Raised by schoolteachers, Quinn has always known to embrace his natural curiosity. This has broadened his horizons vastly, as he unceasingly looks to learn about people, places, and opportunities. As soon as he learned about the U.S. Public Health Service at a lecture in college, Quinn knew this would be the perfect fit.
Quinn Bott believes deeply in the value of serving one’s nation and giving back. Above all else, Quinn is passionate about helping people. As a member of an integrated system to advance and promote public health, he can do just that. Quinn’s academic and professional careers have been greatly shaped by his willingness to go places to which most healthcare providers do not feel comfortable venturing. He excels under the pressures and challenges that such environments provide, as they are typically unforgiving in terms of the limited resources available to meaningfully impact underserved and at-risk populations.
