Super excited to have Dr. Carmen Fong on the show. We asked all the tough questions, like what kinds of things do you pull out of patients' butts. And let me tell you it's wide and varied and somehow always a mistake. Dr. Carmen Fong earned a Doctor of Medicine in 2013 from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, where she was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. She completed a general surgery residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in 2018, after which she completed a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at Stony Brook University Hospital/NYU Winthrop. Her academic interests are in surgical education, colon cancer in young people, and medical technology. She mentors trainees and wants more women to be surgeons. Outside of medicine, she is a writer and an artist. She writes for Medium and for Baseline Med, a website for BIPOC pre-health students. She is on Twitter @carmenfong_MD, on Instagram and on LinkedIn.
