Emily Liao, MD (she/her)

Position: PGY-1

Emily grew up in Brooklyn, NY before moving to the Boston area to attend Wellesley College. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with research honors in biological sciences and with a minor in Chinese language and culture. She loved teaching ESL English to Chinese immigrants of Boston’s Chinatown and working with Boston’s underserved immigrant populations throughout college, which prompted her to stay in the area to attend Tufts University School of Medicine directly afterwards. At Tufts, she became a member of the Sam W. Ho Health Justice Scholars Program and studied anti-racism curricular interventions in medical education. She is passionate about addressing social inequities in healthcare, particularly those affecting underserved urban immigrant families. In her free time, you can find Emily exploring new restaurants and cafes, catching up with friends over brunch, experimenting with new cooking/baking recipes, or trying a new fitness class.
