San Francisco Chronicle

At 29, Jirayut “New” Latthivongskorn boasts an enviable resume. He’s a UC Berkeley and Harvard University alumnus. A Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree. Founder of an immigration advocacy organization. And, most recently, Latthivongskorn became the first undocumented student to graduate from the UCSF School of Medicine in its 155-year history.

Latthivongskorn completed the program in Medical Education for the Urban Underserved, a five-year track for students focused on serving marginalized communities. He’ll start his residency training in family and community medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital in June, through a UCSF program.
