I was born and raised just outside of Boston, MA. My parents both emigrated from Cambodia and their work ethic and values inspired much of what I did growing up and much of what I’m interested in going forward. I was heavily involved in volunteerism and service in high school, a habit that continued while I was a biology major at Boston University. During college, I volunteered at the Brigham to explore my budding interest in medicine and had the privilege to interact with members of the many communities of Boston. While studying at the University of MA Medical School, I continued to reach out into the community by helping to establish a new free clinic in a previously underserved area of Worcester, MA. I am currently a second year internal medicine resident in the primary care program. As co-chair of community outreach, I am thrilled to be able to continue to meet and serve the communities that I grew up in! Outside of the hospital I enjoy exploring new foods and restaurants.

I was born and raised in New York City, the greatest city in the world (no bias) and moved to Boston      to become a resident in Internal Medicine. I did my undergraduate training at New York University and went to medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Growing up as a physician’s son, I    saw the impact my father had on his patients and the community and decided that this was the job I would one day have. The mentorship he provided his young patients is similar to what I hope to offer    as a member of the MAO board. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to develop this MAO   family and increase its influence on campus and beyond.

Camilo Jaimes Cobos, MD, MPH Diagnostic Radiology, PGY2                                                                                                                                                     Public Relations Co-Officer

                         

 

I was born in Bucaramanga, a small city in the northeast of Colombia. I went to medical school in    Bogota, where I spent 6 fantastic years exploring a variety of healthcare settings, from community hospitals to large referral centers. In my last year of medical school I decided I wanted to become a radiologist. In 2010 I moved to Philadelphia, where I was involved in research to better understand   normal development of children through imaging. I stared my residency at the MGH in 2013, and I      have collected only good and great memories. It was exciting to find a large community of trainees    from  diverse backgrounds and to see that the number continues to grow. With the staff from MAO,        we will work to create new spaces for people to get know each other, and we can make sure everyone    who comes to MGH feels “at home”.
