Medical Student Contributing Writer

University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine

Russyan moved to the United States from the Philippines when he was 15. His experiences as a low-income, immigrant of color are instrumental to his desire to pursue medicine and use it as a tool to elevate marginalized communities. A medical student at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, he hopes to one day be a primary care physician fighting for health equity through policy, advocacy and education. He enjoys coffee, singing, the enneagram and deep conversations.




Announcing Mosaic in Medicine: A Letter from the Editors-in-Chief

We are proud to announce the founding of Mosaic in Medicine, an online peer-reviewed publication for underrepresented voices in medicine. We founded this publication to shine a light on the issues and difficulties that we face as underrepresented individuals in medicine. Our experiences as unheard voices in medicine are all too often hidden, overlooked, or unrecognized.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus

Albany Medical College

I originally grew up in New Hampshire and then attended college at Emory University, where I earned a B.S. in Biology. I completed a 1-year Master of Science program in Biotechnology and Health Sciences at Johns Hopkins Krieger School of Arts and Sciences before matriculating to medical school. I am currently a 1st year Internal Med resident at San Antonio Military Medical Center, serving as a Captain in the U.S. Airforce. I have a keen interest in quality improvement and patient safety at a medical education level as well as at a systems implementation level and am involved in research on involving students in the QI processes. My goal, as an Editor-in-Chief, is to represent military medicine and to advocate for this population that I will serve in the future.
