Biography

Dr. Lucy McBride is a native Washingtonian. She attended the National Cathedral School, Princeton University, and Harvard Medical School, where she graduated with honors. She was a 1996 Fulbright scholar at the University of Cambridge, UK, where she earned a Masters Degree in Pharmacology.

Dr. McBride completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. She then spent several years on the Emergency Medicine faculty at Hopkins.

Dr. McBride is a trusted and recognized voice in patient care, she is also a healthcare educator, mental health advocate and author of a popular newsletter, working to increase awareness of the inseparability of mental and physical health.

Dr. McBride is passionate about helping people rethink what it means to be healthy by recognizing it is about more than the absence of disease—and arming people with tools to manage their everyday health. She views primary care doctors as a critical, trusted, and accessible point of contact to spread this wellness message and cut through medical misinformation. She is also a vocal advocate of the need to reimagine the role to better focus on treating the whole patient — not just their symptoms but by incorporating mental health into the care of physical health.

Dr. McBride practices general internal medicine with special interests in the long-term management of hypertension, heart disease, lipid disorders, and diabetes.

Dr. McBride is a member of the clinical staff at Sibley Memorial. She is board certified in Internal Medicine. She lives in the District of Columbia with her husband and three children.
