Graduating with a physiology degree from UCLA, Mehran always knew he would be involved in healthcare. As a medical student he has developed his interests further, through chairing various interest groups, as president of the UCLA chapter of the AMA, as a summer fellow working with medical administration, or by serving on the medical school admissions committee. Mehran continues to work hard towards his goals and is currently pursuing the MD/MBA joint degree offered at UCLA. He hopes to continue in a specialty that allows him to utilize not only his medical skills, but also the administrative skills he hopes to gain through the MBA program. In his free time, he loves to travel exploring the world near and far.
