Raina Shah, D.O.

Raina Shah, D.O. Class of 2021


Cerritos, CA


UC Irvine

Medical School:

Touro University- Nevada

Hobbies: When I'm not eating, sleeping, or studying I love painting, swimming, hiking, and spending as much time as I can with my family and friends. Did I mention I like eating?!

Why UC Irvine: Orange County is a very family oriented community. You can see that value reflected in the training and ideals within the Family Medicine Residency Program. The school allows its residents to explore various interests and encourages and supports out-of-the-box ideas to help patients reach healthy goals and better lifestyles. 

Medical Interests: I have a big interest in the arts and humanities of Medicine and medical training. I believe bridging art and science leads to a greater understanding of illness, prevention, and the importance of mental health. I am also interested in global medicine and finding ways to adopt underserved communities and provide help until communities can stand on their own.

Future Plans: My goals in residency include finding the best and most creative ways to individualize care for my patients. Eventually I would like to travel to other countries to compare and contrasts cultures and international healthcare practices that can be implemented back here, in OC.
