Resident Spotlight

Dr. Philip HendersonPhilip Henderson, R2
Hometown: Toledo, OH
MD: University of Toledo

About Me: I'm a very easy going, fun-loving, laugh-at-every-opportunity kind of guy. I love to spend quality time with friends and loved ones as much as possible. Also, in my free time outside of residency, I enjoy exploring San Diego's beaches, the huge variety of food, the various hiking trails, and riding my bike.

Why I chose UC San Diego: I envision myself working either in ID or primary care with a focus on HIV/gay men's health. This program was my first choice in the match because UC San Diego will afford me excellent experiences and opportunities in all of these areas.
