Joseph PhamI would shake your hand if I could, but I don’t think the internet works that way. Hello! My name is Joseph Pham. My passions include singing, arts and crafts, football, movies, and an occasional frozen yogurt treat.

I graduated from SPU June of 2019 with a B.S. in Biochemistry and am currently living in Boise, ID. I work as a medical scribe in the emergency departments in the southwest Idaho area and about to publish my case-study regarding intra-articular corticosteroid injections in shoulders. After that is published, I hope to work on a couple of case-studies in otorhinolaryngology. Other than that, I am studying for the MCAT to take it for the first time in the spring. I will submit my application in the summer of 2020 in hopes to matriculate the fall of 2021.

While at SPU, I started out as a general engineering major and participated in an engineering research project that created an open-source prosthetic hand using 3D printing technology for third-world countries. After deciding to pursue medical school, I completed the COPE Health Scholar program at Swedish First Hill and was a fellow at the Bailey-Boushay House. I was also the public relations advisor for the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students and president for SPU’s Pre-Health Club. I was also a Centurion, Cadet/General Military Course Advisor at the University of Washington Air Force ROTC program, and founder of SPU’s acapella group, “Cry of the Falcon”.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns about the application process. The process is long and seems daunting, but medicine is a collaboration, not a competition. Feel free to reach out via email at any time. My work schedule is unpredictable, but I will make sure to set a time to meet.
