My name is Ryan Fang and I am a third year medical student at the University of Washington. I was born and raised about 25 miles south of Seattle in the town of Federal Way, Washington. I attended the University of Washington for my undergraduate education, completing my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in music in 2015. I chose to pursue my medical education because my I want to represent, advocate and serve people of marginalized communities. My favorite color is orange and outside of my medical training my hobbies are playing piano, weight lifting and video games. I am a nationally-competitive speed skater, a violinist with the Seattle Festival Orchestra and I speak 4 languages. I am excited to spend time getting to know your community ~ Thank you for welcoming me!
About The WRITE Program
The WRITE program is designed to give selected third-year medical students an appropriate mix of ambulatory and hospital experience during a 22/24-week clinical education experience at a rural primary care teaching site. Throughout the program, the WRITE student has the opportunity to develop a practice style while learning how to treat a broad range of medical, surgical and psychological problems. Learning experiences emphasize the rural physician’s responsibilities of diagnosing, treating, and managing the majority of health problems on a longitudinal basis, while calling upon all the health care resources available in the community.
