Guest Bio

Bryan Chung, MD

Bryan Chung is a methodologist who improves people’s relationship with science. He is a plastic/hand surgeon and PhD research designer. The biggest compliment he’s ever received was from his mentor while in residency. After winning the award for Best Paper by a Resident at a worldwide congress in plastic surgery, his professor said, “You deserve this award because, after four years, I finally understand what you’re talking about.” Bryan has been getting better at helping people understand what he’s talking about since. He won’t shut up about evidence-based practice, and sometimes is invited to not shut up about it by important people and institutions globally.
