Mobile Health Fellow: Rose Shan
MD Candidate (’20)
UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine


Rose Shan is a 4th year medical student from UCLA, taking a year off from school to explore her interests in cardiology, creative avenues of patient engagement, and clinical research. She is excited to join the Corrie Team as part of her role as the Mobile Health (mHealth) Fellow at the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease. Rose grew up in Portland, Oregon, and graduated with a B.S. in neuroscience from Brown University, where she studied traumatic brain injuries and developed a panel of biomarkers to aid in diagnosis of concussions. At Brown, she was a patient advocate and campus coordinator for Health Leads Providence, where she empowered patients to access community resources and explored innovative solutions to address gaps in healthcare delivery. At UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, she served as editor-in-chief of UCLA’s The BEAT Journal of Art and Literature and founded the Therapeutic Arts Interest Group, through which she advocated for the intersection of art and medicine, especially using art as a tool to engage patients and bring humanism into medicine. Earlier in medical school, she spent a summer at Johns Hopkins, conducting quality improvement research on recovery after cardiac surgery. Outside of clinical studies and research, Rose enjoys drawing, painting, and biking.
