Dr. Ho grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended the University of California Davis, where he majored in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, and also received campus recognition for community service. After graduating, he worked in an infectious diseases lab, taught high school courses, and also volunteered as an emergency medical technician. He returned to UC Davis for medical school, and was heavily involved in research, having multiple journal publications.
At UC Davis SOM, Dr. Ho was a voting member of the admissions committee, where he quickly learned about the characteristics that made an applicant highly competitive. He used that experience to help dozens of pre-med students effectively market themselves on their applications and receive acceptances to medical school. He completed his internship in internal medicine at UCSF-Fresno, receiving both a Departmental Research award as well as Young Achiever recognition from the American College of Physicians.
Dr. Ho is pursuing a career in radiation oncology at the University of Arizona. He was also a previous MedSchoolCoach student and now he is excited to give back to future students!
