    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

    BioMy areas of interest include pulmonary vascular disease and lung transplantation. I feel passionate about this field of medicine because it allows me to practice very well-rounded medicine and implement all the knowledge acquired since the beginning of my residency training.

    As a lung transplant specialist, we follow our patients through this life changing journey and essentially become their primary care providers. I have the opportunity to practice hospital and pulmonary medicine in the wards managing end stage lung disease and other internal medicine pathologies. Lastly, we are a key component of the multidisciplinary team that takes care of the patient in the intensive care unit during the post operative period when our patients need us the most. The versatility of skill sets required to be a good lung transplant specialist keeps me on my toes and makes me love this profession.

    My ultimate career goal is to become an academic lung transplant specialist and contribute to this rapidly growing field. I am pursuing advanced training on lung transplantation at Stanford University Medical Center to help accomplish my dreams.
