Student Ombuds

Min Lee is an MD/PhD candidate at the Pritzker School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from Yale University where she majored in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. For her current dissertation research, she studies the manifestations of epileptic seizures in eletrographic recordings. Her research aims to better understand how seizures begin, propagate, and terminate in treatment-resistant epilepsies. She is interested in going into psychiatry after graduation.

Since 2018, she has been a medical advocate for Resilience, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that provides services and resources for sexual assault survivors. As a medical advocate, she works with patients in the emergency room to ensure that their legal and medical rights are protected during their hospital visit. She currently serves on the Associate Board for Resilience as a member of their fundraising committee. On campus, she has been a member of the admissions committee and student council for the Medical Scientist Training Program since 2017. She has also served as a teaching assistant for both graduate and undergraduate classes.

In her spare time, you can find her watering one of her many plants, learning improv at Second City, and trying to keep up with her increasingly mobile infant daughter.
