John Junyoung Lee, MD

John was born in Seoul, Korea, and he has been slowly moving East ever since. He grew up in Southern and Northern California, where he received his undergraduate degree in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley. GO BEARS! He then completed medical school at Chicago Medical School, where he quickly learned that yellow snow is bad. He completed his internship in Chicago and finally finished his Internal Medicine residency at the University of Miami–Holy Cross Hospital in Florida. John loves to hang out with his family and his friends, who are like family. He would like to use his new-found fame as a blogger to shamelessly humble brag about his sister and brother-in-law, Jane and Phillip Kim, as they spent countless hours and their Ivy League education editing his personal statements and essays: “Look guys, I made it!”
