MS3 Inpatient Medicine Clerkship Site Director
After graduating from Internal Medicine residency here at Olive View-UCLA in 2012, Dr. Hsu returned to his home state of Texas. He worked for a few years as an academic hospitalist at his old medical school, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He eventually began to miss the nice LA weather and returned to Olive View as a full time faculty member in 2014. He is the UCLA MS3 Inpatient Internal Medicine Clerkship Director for Olive View and also serves as the Medical Director for the Olive View Observation Unit.
Although his hospitalist clinical duties primarily involve attending and teaching on Internal Medicine wards, he is also actively involved with UCLA medical student education. He leads several case discussions with the medical students who rotate at Olive View. He also serves as a member of the Clinical Competency Committee as well as the Applicant Review Committee.
Dr. Hsu enjoys mentoring both medical students as well as residents and helping them reach their full potential. He is an active member of both the Society of General Internal Medicine as well as the Society of Hospital Medicine and has also acted as poster judge of several regional meetings.
