Internal Medicine Chief Residents
Dr. Tamoore Arshad is a native of Cary, North Carolina. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he majored in Chemistry. He then went on to pursue a master’s degree in Physiology from North Carolina State University. He obtained his medical degree from The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. The opportunity to move to the DC area was too great to pass up so he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Inova Fairfax Hospital. He had the privilege of staying on an additional year to serve as Chief Resident. Tamoore plans on pursuing fellowship in Gastroenterology and hopes to eventually pursue a career in Transplant Hepatology. Outside of work, Tamoore is happily married and father to an adorable baby boy. He is a die-hard fan of all UNC Tar Heel sports, enjoys photography and traveling the world.
Dr. Jessica McLaughlin is a native of Norfolk, Virginia, where she completed her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at Old Dominion University. She then traveled west to begin her medical training at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in 2013. It was an easy decision to then move to Northern Virginia to become part of the Inova family. When the opportunity arose to stay on service as a Chief Medicine Resident, she jumped at the chance. She aspires to become a Pulmonary and Critical Care physician and is currently applying to fellowship. During her time off she enjoys spending time with her husband and her dog, hiking on the nearby trails and traveling.
