Thomas KalinoskiThomas Kalinoski

For Dr. Kalinoski, growing up in rural Minnesota instilled a passion for general medicine and high-value care in resource-challenged settings. He completed medical school training at University of Minnesota and IM residency training at UCLA Olive View. He pursued immigrant and refugee health electives domestically, and clinical and research global health experiences in India, Uganda, and Belize, and he completed certificate training in Tropical Medicine. As a resident, and for the past two years as a hospitalist at UCLA, Dr. Kalinoski has engaged in medical and psychiatric evaluations with a Los Angeles, CA asylum clinic where he has gained even greater appreciation of the challenges in care delivery and health equity achievement for those fleeing conflict, violence, and persecution. Additional work in community based medical units, emergency rooms, and ICU coverage in rural hospitals has provided a unique breadth of clinical exposure ripe for further global health engagement. He anticipates future work with Global Health NGOs after his global health fellowship.
