About Samuel Master, DO
The teens and young adults I see every day as an adolescent medicine specialist are inspiring, caring, curious, energized, and complicated, and my passion for this field stems from my experiences working with these incredible individuals. I am committed to ensuring that my patients have equitable access to quality care and feel safe, heard, and empowered to make healthy choices.
I treat children of all ages, but specialize in the years between 10 and 25. My areas of interest include preventive medicine, emotional health, positive youth development, advocacy, and reproductive health for individuals of all genders. I recognize that social context and stress play important roles in how someone is feeling and acting and I will spend the necessary time learning how to best serve each patient.
My research focuses on education for different types of learners. I have helped update and develop more inclusive and comprehensive reproductive health content for medical school and residency programs. Most recently, I created a curriculum for fraternity members about consent and sexual assault in an effort to change attitudes and behaviors. For five years, I taught a graduate student course at Widener University's Center for Human Sexuality Studies, focusing on biological foundations while questioning biases, evaluating how to frame language when providing care, and discussing the critical interdisciplinary roles that are factored into a person's wellbeing.
All of my experiences impact the way I interact with my patients and their families and prompt me to apply a more holistic and individualized approach every single day.
