Tran is part of the first cohort of students who participated in the UMass Bacc/MD program, which creates a pathway from the University of Massachusetts system’s undergraduate campuses to the School of Medicine in Worcester. https://www.umassmed.edu/ne......
“Being the first in my family to graduate from high school and college made it a little more difficult to navigate towards a career in medicine,” said Tran, who grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston with his Vietnamese parents. “The mentorship I’ve had at UMass, from undergraduate to medical school, has been supportive of every decision I’ve made.”
Tran will begin his residency in medicine at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge then continue in neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
