After medical school and internship in Chicago, Dr. Lin did her residency training at the University of California San Francisco where she was nominated vice president of the Cordes UCSF alumni association, and also received the Hogan Garcia award for best resident research project. She then went onto Duke University for a fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery and diseases.
