       Overview 
       Overview
      Dr. Chiong is an Assistant Professor in the UCSF Department of Neurology Memory and Aging Center, where his clinical practices focuses on Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and other cognitive disorders of aging. He is the Associate Director of the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science and Health Policy, is a member of the UCSF Medical Center Ethics Committee, and is the strategic leader of the Decisions Module of the UCSF/UNMC Care Ecosystem project.

      He received his PhD in philosophy from New York University and his MD from UCSF. He completed an internship in internal medicine at Stanford University, and a residency in neurology at UCSF. He then underwent postdoctoral research training in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging at UC Berkeley and clinical training in dementia in the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.

      Dr. Chiong's academic interests lie at the intersection of philosophy, clinical medicine and cognitive neuroscience. His current research concerns decision-making in the aging brain, with a particular focus on how brain structures involved in financial and medical decisions are influenced by aging and disease, and on the ethical and policy implications of these changes.
