He attended Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia and received his Doctor of Medicine degree 1998. After completing both an internship and residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Sean earned his Internal Medicine Speciality.

Before being diagnosed with cancer, Dr. McHugh worked as a Critical Care (ICU) Intensivist at Sentara Hospital, Virginia Beach from 2004-2017. Dr. McHugh was Medical Board certified in Internal Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, and Neuro-Critical Care Medicine. Sean loved his chosen career and was a devoted, caring, and humanitarian doctor. Sean was known for his friendliness and zest for life. He was often the most enthusiastic voice in the room, which he often used to root-on his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. His children loved him for his fun-loving personality and easy going ways. May Sean's kind and generous soul rest in peace.
