About Sarah M Marsicek

Hi! My name is Dr. Sarah Marsicek, and I am an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Florida. I am board-certified in both pediatric hospital medicine and general pediatrics. I earned my medical degree at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine after completing a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Nebraska. Craving the Florida sunshine, I went on to complete my pediatric residency and a year-long pediatric hospital medicine fellowship at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Growing up in a house of medical professionals, my love for medicine started at a young age. Many photos of me as a young child show me in a lab coat, mask and hair net because I loved going into the lab with my dad, a pathologist. When I turned 12 years-old, I began spending my childhood summers volunteering in different hospital departments. My love for medicine grew even more personal when I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 19. It was through this battle that I truly began to understand what it meant to be a physician and who I wanted to become.

Outside of medicine, I am proud of my family. My husband, Steven, and I have three amazing young children, Maddox, Miller and Sutton. I love volunteering at their schools, attending sporting events and spoiling them with Disney and SeaWorld trips. I am also involved in adoption advocacy and supporting families through the adoption process, as well as serving on the board of an adoption non-profit. In my spare time, I like to decompress with hot yoga and running.

I am passionate about providing exceptional evidence-based care for my patients and their families, and I truly believe I have the best job in the world. Not only do I get to see children heal and go home to live full and happy lives, I also get to help train the next generation of physicians. Hospitalization is incredibly stressful for children and their families, and I am honored to help them through this difficult time with my expertise and compassionate care.
