    Keon Young Park, M.D., Ph.D. is currently a general surgery resident with the UCSF Department of Surgery. She undertook undergraduate studies at Emory University majoring in Physics. She received a medical degree from the Emory University School of Medicine and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering jointly from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University where she received the American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellowship.

    Dr. Park began her general surgery residency training as a categorical resident at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she completed the first two years of general surgery training. Between 2018-2020, she completed a T32 Research Training Program.

    Dr. Park’s clinical interest is in pediatric surgery and inflammatory bowel disease. Her research interest is to combine computational and experimental biology to develop patient-specific intestinal models to predict disease progression and treatment responses in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
