Tamara Lhungay, MD
Undergraduate: University of Colorado
Medical school: University of Colorado
Tamara grew up in rural Hygiene, Colorado. She attended the University of Colorado where she graduated with honors with a B.S. in Biology and dual minors in Interdisciplinary Research Methods and Health Humanities. At the University of Colorado School of Medicine, she developed an interest in oncology and survivorship, as well as in serving refugee and migrant populations. (Her father is a Tibetan refugee and her mother is the daughter of Dominican and Jamaican immigrants.) Her research was mainly focused on quality improvement and oncology, but her guiding star remained the humanity within medicine. Wanderlust struck, and after crisscrossing the country, Tamara fell in love with New England, and Brown instantly felt like home because of the warm and genuine people, paired with academic excellence and a supportive and growth-focused culture.
In her free time, Tamara enjoys hiking, skiing, (or any outdoor activity), and will say yes to most adventures. When she must stay indoors she enjoys board games, crocheting, and spending time with her two cats, Remi and Theo.
