Ana Emamian, MD
Palos Verdes, CA
I was raised in Southern California, where I also received my bachelor's degree in health promotion and disease prevention at USC. My interest in public health advocacy and preventative medicine began in college, as I became involved in global medical mission trips and teaching pregnancy prevention/sex education in high schools in LA county. During my time in medical school, my interests continued to evolve with a focus on community mentorship. I feel very fortunate and excited to complete my pediatric training in my home state and hope to continue expanding on these interests throughout residency.
Why I Chose Valley Children's Pediatric Residency:
I had the opportunity to rotate at Valley Children’s for away rotations and instantly felt very welcomed by the compassionate community here. Most importantly, I found wonderful educators, mentors and friends in a supportive environment where I felt I would thrive best. The patient population is also incredibly grateful and kind, and to learn while serving this community is such a privilege.
I enjoy traveling, hiking, trying new restaurants and spending my free time with family and friends, preferably outdoors and in the sun.
Advocacy and Interests:
Adolescent mental health and reproductive education
