Campus Life

Cedars-Sinai is located in Los Angeles, one of the nation's most culturally and ethnically diverse cities. It serves as an ideal environment to address numerous healthcare challenges among a variety of patient populations.

I spend as much time as I can enjoying the sunny skies and sandy beaches of Los Angeles. Living in a place where I can surf in the morning and ski in the same afternoon lets me relax and come back to the hospital a better doctor."
