Dr. Meera Subash
Class of 2017
Hometown: Plano, Texas
MD: Texas Tech
About Me: I'm a Texan originally but made it out for a new adventure to the West Coast. I decided to pursue internal medicine because of its challenging and exciting nature. I love that I've been able to care for some of my patients for almost three years now!
Why I Chose UC San Diego: UC San Diego has afforded me the opportunities of a top-notch training program with meaningful mentorship and camaraderie. The combination of the people you train alongside with, the places you get to practice at, and the patients you serve is tough to beat!
Favorite Place in San Diego: Torrey Pines State Beach has quickly become one of my favorite places. Even on a day off or before a long shift, it's nice to catch the ocean view, walk along the beach, and grab a taco.
Best Part of Living in San Diego: The weather and accessibility hands-down. I can easily get to where I need to be for training and still enjoy a temperate climate all year round. San Diego has the assets of a large city but still is very manageable.
Career Plans: Rheumatology, Quality Improvement/Patient Safety.
We Couldn’t Be More Proud!
