Ashley Nguyen, MD
Undergraduate: Boston College
Medical School: Thomas Jefferson University
Ashley was born and raised in Naugatuck, CT. She went to Boston College, and she graduated Cum Laude with a BS in Biology and a BA in Philosophy. During her time between college and medical school, she did research in the Pediatric Oncology Department at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Her research focused on hematologic malignancies and creating zebrafish animal models. She also served as a Chief Research Associate for the Research Associates Program in St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, CT. Despite her love for Boston, Ashley excitedly left one major city for another, and she attended the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Ashley was involved with Jefferson’s Med-Peds Society of Philadelphia, American Medical Women’s Association, Office of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives, and the Clinical Translational Research track. Her professional interests include Women’s Health, Medical Education, and Diversity Initiatives. Ashley chose Brown for her Med-Peds training first and foremost because of the amazingly kind and warm residents and faculty. Additionally, Brown’s academic excellence, numerous training tracks and programs, and strong learning environment made it a perfect fit.
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys running, journaling, praying, eating good food (especially sushi burritos), and spending time with friends, family, and her husband, Brandon.
Since residency has started, Ashley has gotten involved in the BRIGHT pathway for global health. She has also published in Academic Medicine, the journal of the AAMC, and NMPRA’s Perspective newsletter.
