Tai Pham, MD
I was born in Vietnam but have lived in the Bay Area for most of my life. After completing a degree in Molecular Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, I traveled for a bit and worked a series of fun jobs before attending medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans as part of their MD/MPH program.
Why I chose Valley Children's:
I was attracted to Valley Children's initially due to the strong, accomplished, amazing group of women physicians that was building the program. After working here, I have felt myself in awe at many of the people I've met and their dedication to serving the patients of the Central Valley and building a strong community.
Gardening, cooking, baking bread, hiking, camping, traveling, crafting and watching cooking competitions.
My interests lie in preventative health, hospital medicine and advocacy addressing social and political barriers to health. I'm currently working on a retrospective chart review of acute kidney injury in the acute care setting. I have also submitted an article on the history of coccidiodomycosis in the Central Valley and have published a case study on fetal brain trauma from in utero gun-shot injury. Really, there are so many opportunities to get involved in scholarly projects or create your own at Valley Children's.
