Internal Medicine Residency Faculty

A strong residency program is rooted in strong leadership. Our faculty is devoted to educating residents and medical students.

Dr. Hamel was born and raised in Pennsylvania and attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine before training in Internal Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Afterward, he served Inpatient Chief Resident and then joined the faculty at UCSF, where he worked in the Urgent Care, Emergency Room, and Inpatient Wards.
