About Dr. Hipp

Heather Hipp, M.D.
Assistant Professor
Director of 3rd party Reproduction at Emory Reproductive Center

Dr. Heather Hipp is an Assistant Professor at the Emory Reproductive Center, which she joined in 2016. She is originally from Atlanta and went to Pace Academy for high school. She graduated from Duke University with double majors in Biology and English. She then worked at the National Institutes of Health in Rockville, Maryland for two years, studying genetic associations with addiction disorders and chronic pain. Following this basic science research, she matriculated at Emory University for her M.D and graduated cum laude. She stayed at Emory for her residency in Gynecology and Obstetrics, where she served as Administrative Chief Resident for her final year, and her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

She is actively involved in clinical care of her patients at Emory Reproductive Center and has introduced a Reproductive Endocrine clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital, where she works once a week, caring for an underserved population. She currently serves as the Subspecialty Resident Educator for the Emory OB/ Gyn residents for their REI rotations and is on the Resident Clinical Competency and Program Evaluation Committees.

Dr. Hipp has won multiple clinician, teaching and patient satisfaction awards and was awarded membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society as a resident. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Professional Memberships include the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, and Georgia OB/ Gyn Society. She serves on the Medical Advisory Board for Team Maggie for a Cure, an Atlanta-based charitable foundation that provides support for women seeking fertility preservation prior to cancer treatment.

Dr. Hipp's prior research has focused on women who are carriers for the fragile X mutation and their risk of Primary Ovarian Insufficiency. She is on the National Fragile X Foundation Scientific and Clinical Advisory Committee. She has also published work on national trends and outcomes of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using data from the Centers for Disease Control's National Assisted Reproductive Technology surveillance system. Dr. Hipp has presented her work in multiple peer-reviewed journals and at national scientific and clinical meetings, including American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the International Fragile X Conference.
