Kevin Shee

Resident, Urologic Surgery, UCSF

UCSF is well-known for its Urology research program, and I am confident that my PhD and time in Dr Miller's PEMM lab was a huge selling point of my application. I'm incredibly grateful for all the research and growth opportunities I had as a PEMM student.
