About Me

Allison Chae Ultrasound

I'm a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania interested in diagnostic radiology.

저는 영상의학과에 지원하는 University of Pennsylvania 의대 학년 학생입니다.

I do research exploring clinical applications of up-and-coming technologies to radiologist workflows, and help lead the ultrasound and radiology interest groups at Penn.

저는 방사선 전문의 워크플로에 대한 최신 기술 임상 적용을 탐구하는 연구를 하고 Penn 에서 초음파 방사선 분야의 관심 그룹을 이끄는 도움을 줍니다.

I'm passionate about developing responsible and ethical AI to improve patient outcomes and equitable care.

저는 환자 결과와 공평한 치료 개선하기 위해 윤리적인 AI 개발하고 있습니다.

Prior to med school, I graduated from USC with a Bachelor's in Biology and minor in Accounting.

의대에 입학하기 전에 저는 USC 에서 생물학 학사, 회계학 부전공으로 졸업했습니다.
