Why Kern Medical ID?

Kern Medical offers a unique ID experience as a safety net hospital caring for an underserved population who present with a wide array of infectious diseases. Providing state of the art services via our UCLA appointed ID Faculty; having strong graduate medical education and alumni programs and located in California’s epidemiological epicenter of coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever) - it is unlike anywhere else. It is an honor to be the inaugural fellow in the Division of Infectious Diseases within Kern Medical’s Department of Medicine. To my mentors, I hope to make you proud.
