A Personal Note from Dr. Nguyen
For most of my life, I have called Texas my home as I spent time around the Houston area. For an even longer period, I always wanted to pursue a future career in medicine. I started my undergraduate education at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in neurobiology while working on volunteer efforts in the Austin area through leadership positions in the university Lions Club. These life lessons from these experiences built up my interest in community-based healthcare that go hand-in-hand with primary care health. From there, I moved to the east coast and began my medical education in New York City attending medical school at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harlem. Ultimately, my experiences throughout medical school rotations reinforced my confidence in pursuing family medicine. I believe one of the most important aspects of family medicine was to better connect with patients to understand how their experiences will lead to lifelong health outcomes.
Since arriving at UTMB, I could not have asked for a more supportive and diverse learning environment while simultaneously working with exceptional clinicians and residents. I am excited to continue to build my medical career and network in Texas, and I am happy that the UTMB Family Medicine program has been an integral part of my journey into a lifelong practice of medicine in a state I call home.
