Dr. Youn, is a fellowship-trained neurointensivist who recently completed fellowship training in both neurocritical care and vascular neurology at Yale New-Haven Hospital. Dr. Youn also completed his residency training at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. He finished both his undergraduate and medical school training at Brown University as a part of the combined undergraduate-medical Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME). Of note, Dr. Youn also completed a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship for medical students at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, which provided him an opportunity to experience clinical research first hand at an academic medical center. At that time, he performed research in advanced neuroimaging techniques (both volumetric analysis and diffusion-weighted imaging) in traumatic brain injury patients.
He is a member of various professional societies, including the American Academy of Neurology, the Neurocritical Care Society, the American Stroke Association and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Youn has been involved in several research projects during his fellowship training. His current research interests includes advanced techniques of neuroprognostication in cardiac arrest survivors, methods of treatment for central retinal artery occlusion, and disparities in health care outcomes in underserved stroke populations. He was recently accepted to be a part of the fourth cohort (July 2016) of New York University School of Medicine’s Center for Stroke Disparities Solutions (CSDS) Training and Mentoring Summer Institute, where he will be working with mentors to conduct research with the goal of decreasing health disparities in the field of stroke research.
He is fluent in Korean and continues to work on his Medical Spanish. Outside of work, he enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, and tries to travel as often as possible when not working.
