Resident Spotlight

Dr. Michele PhamDr. Michele Pham
Class of 2016

Hometown: Fountain Valley, CA
MD: UC San Diego

About Me: I am down-to-earth, hardworking and always smiling. When not working, I like to hike, watch sunsets, eat good food, spend time with loved ones, and embark on random adventures.

Why I Chose UC San Diego: I went to medical school at UCSD, so I have always been impressed by how strong the IM residents are here. I interviewed at many programs throughout the US, but made UCSD my first choice due to the diverse patient population, strong training offered, welcoming environment, location, and many research opportunities. My time here has helped me grow and ultimately match at one of the leading Allergy/Immunology fellowships.
