|Claire Fung, MD, MPH|
Claire Fung completed her residency training in Family Medicine at the University of Washington. She then served as the Chief Resident in the Residency and acted as Program Coordinator for the Global Health Fellowship in its first year.
Dr. Fung completed her undergraduate studies at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, majoring in Cell Biology and minoring in Psychology/Child Development. She then went on to receive her MD/MPH at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana with a concentration in International Health and Development.
Her passion for working with underserved populations stems from her experience traveling around the world for medical outreach and pleasure, and from living and working in post-Katrina New Orleans. During medical school, she travelled to Peru to explore ongoing intiatives in Public Health and also to Lesotho to volunteer with the Touching Tiny Lives Foundation.
Dr. Fung's professional interests outside of Global Health and Travel Medicine include Medical Education, and Preventive Medicine (childhood obesity prevention). She also speaks four languages: English, French, Spanish and Cantonese. When not at work, you will find her spending time with her family, making music, cooking up something delicious, or producing artwork with her camera or paintbrush!
