Alex Herskovic, MD - PGY5

"I am originally from Chicago. I went to college at Duke University where I majored in Chemistry, minored in History, and completed a certificate in Management. At Duke, my extracurricular activities were mostly in community service. I worked in a Pediatric Hepatology basic science laboratory for a year after college. I graduated from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine with distinction in research. As a medical student, my research experiences were mostly in Gynecologic Radiation Oncology. I also completed a research thesis project at Feinberg about neutron radiation exposure. In my free time, I enjoy running, weight-lifting, reading history, and traveling. I continue to be a Duke Basketball fan."
