Dylan Hanami, M.D.

Dylan Hanami, M.D. Class of 2020


Los Angeles, California


UC Santa Cruz

Medical School:

Saint Louis University School of Medicine

Hobbies: Traveling, rock climbing, cooking, and eating.

Why UC Irvine: Honestly, it just comes down to the right "fit." I wanted an academic program that also had training in a community hospital and at an FQHC. I'm also interested in serving the Latino community in the US and abroad, and I'd love to pursue a career in academics, so PRIME-LC really called to me. Not only that, UCI was designated as a RHEDI (Reproductive Health Education in Family Medicine) site in February of 2017, so I thought it was a wonderful opportunity for me to contribute to the program.

Interesting Fact: I met the emperor and empress of Japan when I was 5! It was pretty nerve-wracking. 

Medical Interests: Family planning, underserved medicine, social determinants of health, implicit bias in health care, public health and social justice

Future Plans: Maybe work in a rural area as a doctor, and then get back into academic medicine at some point...maybe a fellowship?
