 "Learning from doctors with such rich and diverse backgrounds has shown me that there are many paths to medicine. I feel more empowered to forge my own path and not be afraid of failure when it arises."

I have gained a plethora of experiences while being a part of HPH's Summer Student Research Program. Whether it be clinical research experience, speaking with doctors to get an inside look at their day-to-day lives or having the opportunity to work with the community, this program has been such a privilege to be a part of. 

The research project that I am working on this summer, under the tutelage of my Principal Investigator Dr. Franklin Lee, is examining whether the posterior acoustic shadow that shows up on an ultrasound of a kidney stone, is a better proxy for stone size compared to the stone image on the ultrasound itself.  In conducting this research, we hope to validate, in a clinical setting, previous in vitro studies that have shown that the acoustic shadow more closely mimics the true stone size on ultrasound in an attempt to reduce stone size overestimation.
