Dr. Jason Hong is a pulmonary and critical care physician who practices in Westwood and provides care to patients admitted to UCLA hospitals in Westwood and Santa Monica. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine. His primary clinical interests are in pulmonary vascular diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension. He also sees patients with a variety of other pulmonary conditions such as interstitial lung diseases.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Hong conducts translational research to uncover the molecular mechanisms of pulmonary arterial hypertension with the ultimate goal of finding more effective therapies for patients. To achieve this goal, he combines experimental investigations using preclinical models and clinical samples with novel computational approaches leveraging advanced sequencing technologies.

Dr. Hong received his undergraduate and MPH degrees from UC Berkeley and his medical degree from Loma Linda University. He completed an internal medicine residency at Columbia and a pulmonary and critical care fellowship at UCLA. He also received his Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology at UCLA.

Dr. Hong is an assistant clinical professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a member of the American Thoracic Society.
