UCSF Resident Councilor Rep
Hello. I’m currently a PGY-2 in the UCSF Adult Psychiatry Residency Program and I’m excited at the opportunity to participate as a resident councilor with NCPS.
I’m originally from the Northeast and completed my undergraduate training at Princeton University, where I studied political science with a focus on health policy. I spent several years working as a writer and editor for a newspaper in Seoul, South Korea, prior to completing medical school at the University of Pennsylvania. While in Philadelphia, I became interested in organized medicine and was a delegate for the Pennsylvania Medical Society.
I decided to move to the West Coast for residency and happily landed in San Francisco. I’ve tried to learn quickly about the unique aspects of mental health care in the city and have found the connections and educational opportunities provided by NCPS to be invaluable in this endeavor. My interests include public psychiatry, mental health policy and the intersection between psychiatry and the law. I hope to give back to NCPS with a particular focus on increasing participation among UCSF residents and fellows as well as building on the excellent work already done in increasing collaboration between the Bay Area residencies.
