Dr. Brandon Tang
Brandon is an award-winning physician, author, educator, and healthcare innovator. Although he loves his work as a physician, the chaos and disorganization of inpatient medicine has always concerned him. He believes that there is a hidden pandemic of “assembly line medicine” in healthcare which needs to be addressed.
Brandon is passionate about medical education and health innovation and has consistently demonstrated national-level impact in these areas. He is the author of two medical textbooks, two mobile apps, over 60 peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, and has served in leadership roles for provincial, national, and international medical organizations. Brandon completed medical school at the University of Toronto, graduating concurrently with a Master’s Degree in System Leadership and Innovation. He is currently an internal medicine resident at the University of British Columbia and has received over 50 local, provincial, national, and international awards for his leadership and community contributions throughout his training.
Ultimately, Brandon aspires to make a lasting impact on Canadian healthcare as an internal medicine specialist, educator, and health systems leader. In his free time, he loves to travel, cook, read, and spend time with his partner, Linda, who is also a physician.
