Brian Ichwan, MD '15: Recent Grad Spotlight 

 

Profile Picture.jpgName: Brian Ichwan

Where are you from originally?
Duarte, California.

Do you have any family members who are OSU Medicine graduates?
No

Where was your undergraduate institution?
University of California – Los Angeles

Where are you going for your residency and what is your specialty?
Stanford University for Emergency Medicine

Who was your mentor at the College of Medicine?
I had a few. Dr. Daniel Clinchot had a large impact in my pre-clinical years. Dr. David Bahner and Dr. Jeffery Caterino have both been true role models.

What are your most thankful for in regards to your College of Medicine education?
The amazing and wonderful opportunities. One such opportunity was the Ultrasound education in Ohio State lead by Dr. David Bahner. With so much flexibility as a medical student here you are given the opportunity to immerse yourself in advanced topics of medical education such as ultrasound. After spending four years immersed in ultrasound it has been amazing to find myself as a 4th year in an isolated village of Guatemala being able to use an ultrasound machine to diagnose and exclude multiple disease processes.

What advice do you have for students entering medical school at Ohio State next year who are interested in pursuing a career similar to yours
Start early. Ohio State is great because of its people and mentorship. There are so many different specialties but such a limited amount of time! Definitely find time early on to shadow in the Emergency Department to make sure the specialty is right for you and ask about research opportunities to get your name out there. But more importantly, look for that mentor, because medical school is tough! And there is nothing better than the advice of a mentor who has lived and overcome what you are about to go through.

Most memorable moment(s) at Ohio State?
My global health trip to Rio Dulce, Guatemala. Ohio State has a wonderful global health program. They allow students to have the flexibility to go to almost any international program imaginable. Not only are they accommodating, they provided valuable information and resources to ensure our safety and education were optimized.

FUN FACTS

What does an ideal Sunday look like for you?
At the Red River Gorge sport climbing at Miur Valley and ending the day eating some amazing pizza at Miguel’s

Hobbies? Volunteer work?
Hobbies include rocking climbing, long-distance cycling,photography, swimming
