Elizabeth Sun, M.D.

 Elizabeth Sun, M.D.Z. Elizabeth Sun was born in Payson, UT to immigrant parents who were BYU physics graduate students at the time. Her grandmother helped raise her in Jilin, China from the time she was eight months to 30 months old. Elizabeth’s earliest childhood memories, however, were of Seattle, WA; this is where she spent kindergarten through senior year of college. She attended the University of Washington and obtained dual degrees in Neurobiology and Business Administration. By this time, she was certain she wanted to become a physician, but she also explored interests in education and basic science research through volunteering in the Seattle Public School system and conducting genetics research in the Raskind lab. 

Soon after graduation, Elizabeth made her way to the Midwest to attend medical school at the Ohio State University. It was in medical school that she returned to her fascination with the brain and nervous system and, late in third year, decided to pursue a career in Neurology (potentially neurological critical care). It was also during medical school that she met and married her wonderful husband, Luke, who works in computer science education and used to run professionally. Together they adopted two young cats, Fortuna and Cinder. The four of them are ecstatically looking forward to calling Portland home, making new friends, and exploring the beautiful Oregon geography! As a Pacific Northwesterner, Elizabeth enjoys hiking, skiing, biking, painting, and fresh coffee.

Student Health Center Clerk/Condom Fairy (refilled the condom machines, not as sexy as it sounds)


I was drawn here because it seemed like the program where I would be the happiest, and I haven't regretted my decision for a minute.  My colleagues are fun, interesting and supportive; the nurses and auxiliary staff are fun to work with; everyone here takes pride in their work. Portland has a relatively low cost-of-living, great neighborhoods, fantastic variety and quality of food, and last-minute getaways to the coast or the Columbia Gorge are very doable — even on an intern's schedule.

Madeline Nguyen, M.D.

Madeline Nguyen was born and raised in Minnesota. She attended Macalester College for undergrad in St. Paul, MN, which was smaller than her high school. Afterward, she made her escape to Washington DC to attend Georgetown University for a master's in pharmacology. There, she studied the role of neurotrophins and Parkinson’s disease as well as ApoE proteins in Alzheimer’s disease. Ultimately, the pull of Minnesota was too strong, and Madeline returned to attend the University of Minnesota for medical school. During this time, she worked on providing medical resources to the homeless population of the Twin Cities. She also enjoyed hiking, biking, and canoeing – all things she is looking forward to doing in Portland.

Kimmy Su, M.D.

Kimmy Su was born in Akron, Ohio to Taiwanese immigrants and enjoyed a few years of heavy snows and hot summers before moving west to Cupertino, CA (aka, home of Apple). She attended the University of California at Berkeley, where she majored in neurobiology and psychology and worked at the Berkeley Art Museum. After college, Kimmy spent a few years on the opposite coast working at the NIH doing epilepsy research and living in Washington, D.C. After getting accepted into medical school, she immediately quit her research position and spent half a year in Taiwan improving her Chinese, teaching English, and writing bilingual restaurant reviews for a local magazine. Kimmy attended medical school at OHSU, where she completed her MD/PhD investigating neurodegeneration in MS. She looks forward to staying in Portland for at least another 4 years for her neurology residency, as there are many more local restaurants and food carts to sample. When not at the hospital, Kimmy enjoys catching up on sleep, playing with her two adorable cat‐dogs Nala and Nobu, watching Jane Austen movies, photography, cooking, baking, taking up yet another crafting hobby, trying out new restaurants with her soon‐to‐be husband Kory, and traveling.
