Pawina Jiramongkolchai, MD, MSCI

PGY3 Resident

"The surgical teaching, variety of cases, and collegiality here are unparalleled!"

Hometown: Woodland Hills, CA

Personal Statement: I chose Washington University because of the exceptional clinical training and research opportunities and strong collegiality among the faculty and house staff. I am interested in all aspects of otolaryngology and look forward to further exploring each area during residency. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing squash, and trying out new restaurants in the area.
