Chief Residents


stanley fang, MD

Hometown: Taipei, Taiwan/San Francisco, CA
Undergraduate: University of California, Davis
Medical School: The Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science
Future Plans: Academic Medicine
Hobbies: reading, writing, coffee drinking, and spending time with my wife and children
Bio: I grew up in Taiwan and immigrated to the US at age 11, lived in Maryland for 3.5 year then relocated to Beijing China for my father's job. I attended college at UC Davis, where I met my wife. After college, I pursued a career in real estate investment; however, my intellectual curiosity and desire for health equality motivated my career change to medicine. I chose USC for the patients it served. From caring for the underserved to witnessing cutting-edge medical innovation, the unique pathology and interesting life stories, along with the irreplaceable camaraderie among the housestaff, USC fostered my growth as a clinician in the past three years and I have become part of the USC family. Through my year as chief resident, I look to give back and share the amazing training experience I received here. In the future, I hope to continue my medical career in medical education and healthcare policy. 


david herman, MD

Hometown: Valhalla, NY
Undergraduate: Princeton University
Medical School: USC Keck School of Medicine
Future Plans: GI/Hepatology
Hobbies: Exercising/weight-lifting, playing video games, especially competitive Overwatch, horror movies, and spending time with my LA friends and family.
Bio: After a short stint in public relations out east, I changed careers to medicine and have not looked back. I am obsessed with all things liver while in the hospital and have deeply enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to learn and train at USC. I have also settled well into life outside of work; after seven years out west, I am starting to feel like a Californian, for better or worse. In my spare time, I enjoy movie nights with my neighbors, local drag shows, Thai street food, and power lifting. I am also a huge video game fanatic and compete in the online Overwatch community, with mixed results, airing my daily frustrations to my fish, James van der Beek.

Bio: I'm originally from New York but have been in California since high school.  I attended college at the University of California, Berkeley where I majored in Public Health. Go Bears!  I proceeded to study at USC where I completed both my postbaccalaureate program and medical degree.
