Dr. Sam Park is a past Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellow, which allowed him to train with exceptional clinician scientists at UT Southwestern Medical Center and culminated in publishing several research papers. Sam completed two years of General Surgery residency at UCSD. His career interest then changed to primary care. He completed UCSD’s Preventive Medicine Residency, which provided training in primary care with a focus on disease prevention, lifestyle modification, healthy behavior promotion, and population health. During residency, he also earned a Master of Public Health degree with an emphasis in Health Management and Policy at SDSU, where his studies focused on health administration, economics, finance, quality improvement, and health policy.
During his free time, Sam enjoys reading books on self-improvement, working on his fitness, and going to San Diego’s finest dog beaches with his wife Dana and their French bulldog, Eggy.
