Joe Tung is an MD/MBA candidate at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School with interests at the intersection of clinical medicine, healthcare management, and medical innovation. Joe was born and raised in Taiwan before his family moved to Cerritos in Southern California when he was 10 years old. He attended Yale University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry. There, he identified and elucidated a pivotal process in the regulation of blood and lymphatic vessel development. He also explored deficiencies in mental health care at Yale through a seminar with investigative journalist Bob Woodward, which helped inspire his interest in a systems approach to healthcare transformation. In medical school, Joe has been involved in the Crimson Care Collaborative student-faculty clinic and has served as Co-President of the Asian Pacific American Medical Students Association and the HMS Healthcare Management Interest Group. Joe has been fortunate to have had many influential mentors in his life, and he believes in paying this privilege forward by mentoring others.
