Welcome to Woody's World

"It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it."
Ecclesiastes 5:5 (New International Version)

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Shearwood "Woody" McClelland III, M.D. and by the grace of God, I received my medical degree as a graduate of the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons (P&S) class of 2004. I was also fortunate enough to graduate from Harvard College as a member of the Class of 2000 in the field of biology. During my time at Harvard, I lived in Straus Hall as a freshman, and in Eliot House as an upperclassman. I graduated from Teaneck High School in 1996 (its all about public schools!). I am a 6' 1'' Christian from Teaneck, New Jersey. Some of my hobbies are: music trivia (ESPECIALLY 80's music trivia -- feel free to challenge me!), in addition to chess, tennis and the internet :). I am a HUGE fan of just about every sport, and a diehard fan of the New (Jersey!) Giants, New Jersey Devils, New York Mets, and University of Connecticut Huskies men's and women's basketball. I love the opportunity I have to serve the living God and be a positive force in the Black community.

While in medical school, my activities (besides studying :)) were:

  • Co-Chair and former Bible Study Coordinator of the Columbia Health Sciences Christian Fellowship
  • Member of the Black and Latino Students Organization
  • Member of the Columbia Graduate School Choir
  • Member of the Student Interest Group in Neurology
  • Member of the Ultrasounds (male a-capella group)
  • Member of the Squash Club

    My activities at Harvard were:

  • President of the Chess Club
  • President of the Black Men's Forum
  • Webmaster of the KUUMBA singers
  • Member of the Black Student's Association
  • Member of the Harvard-Radcliffe Christian Fellowship
  • Member of the Table-Tennis Club
  • Active participant in the Harvard chapter of Best Buddies, an international organization whose mission is to establish one-on-one friendships with people who have cognitive disabilities (i.e. autism, Down syndrome). My buddy's name was Scott Marsden. He is a really cool person and a very good basketball player. We often played chess together and went over homework.
