Resident Spotlight: Tina Pham

Tina Pham (PGY-1)

Tina Pham, MD is an intern (PGY-1) in Emory’s J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency program. Before coming to Emory, Tina attended Stanford University and graduated with degrees in Asian American studies and biology. Her dual degree inspired a research interest in racial disparities in health care.  After completing her undergraduate degrees, she attended medical school at Medical College of Georgia’s Athens campus.

Tina chose Emory for her internal medicine training for a number of reasons. First, she enjoys training at Grady Memorial Hospital. “Working at Grady is a very rewarding and humbling experience,” she said. She also values the diversity within Emory’s internal medicine residency program and at Emory as a whole.

During her time at Emory, she hopes to learn how to become a strong advocate for her patients and to empower them to take more control of their health. After completing her residency, Tina hopes to pursue a fellowship in gastroenterology and, ultimately, hepatology.
