    Anthony I. Squillaro MD MPH is a general surgery resident in the UCSF Department of Surgery. Originally from the Jersey Shore, he majored in philosophy as an undergraduate at College of Holy Cross in Worcester, MA and received a master’s degree in public health from Columbia University while performing clinical research and interning at Children’s Health Fund, a non-profit in Harlem, New York. He earned his medical degree with an added emphasis on global health at the Medical School for International Health, a uniquely collaborative program between Ben Gurion University and Columbia University in New York which included clinical experiences in Israel, Bedouin Arab communities, Nepal, and the US.

    Dr. Squillaro began his general surgery training as a categorical resident at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson. He then pursued a two-year post-doctoral research fellowship at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. During his research years, he investigated stem cell therapies for Hirschsprung’s disease and congenital liver disease. He was also involved in health outcomes and clinical research investigating neonatal and pediatric opioids use in surgical patients. He continued his training at the University of California San Francisco.

    He enjoys spending time with family and his wife who is also a physician and exploring the numerous great coffee places, hiking trails, and wine vineyards of the Bay Area.
