Join us on Tuesday April 6th at 8pm for a talk and workshop with Dr. Alan Segal on medical school and the path to becoming a doctor!
Alan Segal, MD, MSEE is a physician/scientist, clinician/educator, electrical/bioengineer, inventor and evolutionary physiologist. His main interests are the kidney, ion channels, and teaching via storytelling and comedy.
After graduating in Electrical and Bioengineering he pursued graduate work in Feedback & Control Systems and did a thesis in Bioelectromagnetics, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then attended the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. Following residency in Internal Medicine, he completed a physician-scientist nephrology fellowship at Yale University. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology.
After serving as a junior faculty member at Yale, he joined the faculty of the University of Vermont (UVM) in 1996 in the Departments of Medicine, Pharmacology, and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics. He developed several inventions to facilitate optical and electrophysiological studies. He and his laboratory have been funded by the National Kidney Foundation and the NIH (Physician-Scientist Award and RO-1). He has been teaching physiology and nephrology since 1990. He directed the nephrology fellowship program at UVM for more than a decade.
All of his endeavors—whether it be electricity, physiology, the kidney, ion channels, and even psychology and learning—have explored the relationship and connection between the evolution of structure/function and how things move (e.g., flow). Currently, he is finishing an electronic textbook entitled, Clinical Kidney (Patho)physiology for the Boards and Wards.
