Brittany Harrison, MD
Brittany, a San Francisco native, first got to know Los Angeles while studying Psychology and Spanish as an undergraduate in the UCLA Honors Program. After a stint in digital communications, she completed a post-baccalaureate year at Bryn Mawr College, returning to medicine. Brittany then performed clinical research with the UCSF Breast Care Center. Subsequently, she graduated from UCSF School of Medicine, followed by surgical internship at UCSF East Bay. Brittany then emerged from the fog of the Bay Area and intern year, returning to sunny Southern California for diagnostic radiology residency at UCLA, where she will continue as an integrated interventional radiology resident. As chief, Brittany looks forward to bridging the evolving IR and DR programs, helping residents find their niches, and dispelling the SF-LA rivalry (Go Giants!).
Kelsey Herrmann, MD
Kelsey was born and raised in Fair Oaks, California, located the perfect distance between the San Francisco coast and Lake Tahoe slopes. She completed her undergraduate education at UCLA with a major in Biology and graduated with summa cum laude honors. Prior to medical school, Kelsey worked in the UCLA Nuclear Medicine department conducting clinical research. UCLA and the Los Angeles weather won her over, and she decided to continue her education at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA where she participated in UCLA Global Medical Training and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Following medical school, she completed her intern year at Harbor UCLA Medical Center. She has loved her experience at UCLA for radiology residency thus far and she is looking forward to working with her fellow chief residents to support resident education and continue Dr. Weston's important work photographing residents with therapy dogs. Following residency, she will pursue a fellowship in abdominal imaging.
David Zucker, MD
David was born in Los Angeles and raised in Northern California. He attended Brandeis University for his undergraduate education where he earned degrees in Biology and “Health: Science, Society, and Policy.” He returned to California to complete a research-intensive master’s degree through Dominican University of California at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, where he spent time playing with worms in order to discover the secrets of longevity. Medical school took David across the globe to Tel Aviv at the Sackler School of Medicine. Following his medical intern year at Maimonides Medical Center, David was thrilled to return to Los Angeles. When his training finally concludes, David plans on pursuing a career in Interventional Radiology. David is deeply honored to accept this role of co-chief and he looks forward to working closely with co-residents and administrators to promote the best possible training experience. He and his wife saw the arrival of their son at the end of April, and David is grateful that his co-chiefs have agreed to unlimited free babysitting.
