    Dr. Joshua Ronen was born and raised in San Jose, CA. He attended Santa Clara University where he majored in Biology with an emphasis in Biomedical Sciences as well as Public Health Sciences. He is recent graduate of Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) at which he attained the degree of Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). Dr. Ronen's academic interests throughout medical school included endocrinology, hematology/oncology, rheumatology, and cardiovascular medicine. He plans on investigating these further in the clinic and on the wards during residency in order to determine whether to pursue a career in General IM or fellowship training upon graduation in 2021. Additionally, he hopes to continue involvement as a resident via clinical and leadership opportunities with the American College of Physicians, teaching, and mentorship of medical and pre-medical students. These are also things he wants to integrate into his future career.

    Outside of medicine, Dr. Ronen enjoys watching and playing sports, listening to music, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
