Brian came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Brown University, where he majored in Biophysics. He entered the MD program in 2017.
While at Icahn, Brian published over 10 articles in peer-reviewed journals on machine learning and orthopedics with the Cho Spine Laboratory. He was accepted into The Patient-Oriented Research Training and Leadership (PORTAL) program, a scholarship- funded MD/MSCR dual degree program, and was awarded the PORTAL Thesis Award in Clinical Research for his master's thesis work on Generative Adversarial Networks. He also participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP), the ISMMS student-run free clinic, as a Tech Chair and EHHOP Consulting Chair. He volunteered in the COVID-19 Data Analysis Task Force, Orthopedics Interest Group, and Student High Value Care Committee.
Brian would like to thank his family, friends, and the many faculty members at Sinai, in particular Dr. Samuel K. Cho and Dr. Jun S. Kim, who have made his medical education thus far a super interesting and rewarding experience.
Brian will graduate with his MD/MSCR degree and continue his residency training in Orthopedic Surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
