On Saturday, Oct 3, Donald Trump’s personal physician, Dr Sean Conley exited the Walter Reed Medical Center with a phalanx of doctors to update the world on the president’s condition.

The news conference put a national spotlight on Dr. Conley. Dr Sean Conley has served as Mr Trump’s personal physician since March 2018 and before now has rarely been in the spotlight.

As reported by BBC, Dr Conley is a native of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. The 40-year-old graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2002 before studying osteopathic medicine at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree in 2006.

The report further states that in 2014 Dr Conley served as the chief of trauma with a Nato medical unit in Afghanistan. He received a Romanian Emblem of Honor for saving a Romanian soldier injured by an improvised explosive device.

The US Navy officer was later assigned to the White House Medical Unit. He became Mr Trump’s acting personal doctor in March 2018 when the president nominated his then-physician Dr Ronny Jackson to head the US Department of Veteran Affairs. Dr Conley officially took the role of Mr Trump’s personal doctor in May 2018.

In May, Dr. Conley gained attention after revealing that Mr. Trump had started taking hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug, while under his care.
