Philip ChungPostdoctoral Fellow


I am a physician anesthesiologist at Stanford Hospital and a machine learning researcher with an interest in natural language processing, clinically-applied artificial intelligence, and clinical informatics. I have a particular interest in using large language models with electronic health record data to improve clinical care and perioperative medicine.

I completed my anesthesiology residency at University of Washington in the Bonica Research Scholars track. My research involved using clinical notes in the electronic health record to stratify a patient’s preoperative risk and tie risk predictions to words in the original note text. I went to medical school at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Prior to that I was a medical device research engineer and completed MS from UC Berkeley-UCSF bioengineering program and BS from UC Berkeley.


I like hiking, but I only do day hikes because I cannot give up the modern comforts of a hot shower and bed at the end of the day.  I also enjoy cocktail making where I have accumulated a home bar to play with flavors.
