Dawi Shin

Dawi came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Macaulay Honors College at The City College of New York, where he majored in Biomedical Engineering. Before attending Icahn, Dawi co-founded a social impact start up Veripad to combat the global counterfeit medication crisis. He entered the MD program in 2019.

While at Icahn, Dawi participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership, the ISMMS student-run free clinic (EHHOP) as the Pharmacy Chair of the Mental Health Clinic at EHHOP. He organized and volunteered numerous community healthcare events for the predominantly Korean-speaking NY/NJ population in collaboration with the local Korean physician, nursing, and social worker associations, published over 20 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and raised $300,000 for his startup's harm reduction initiatives in the US.

Dawi would like to thank his family, friends, and the many faculty members at Sinai who have made his medical education thus far a super interesting and rewarding experience.

Dawi will graduate with his MD degree and continue his residency training in Anesthesiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
