About

Simon R. Downes, MD, PhD student

Thank you for visiting Med School Radio!

I was born in the UK in 1966, moved to the US in 1978, then to Japan in 1992. I have a PhD in developmental/educational psychology from the University of Tsukuba in Japan, and I have just completed my MD clinical rotations in Chicago, Illinois & McAllen, Texas. I am fluent in Japanese after having lived in the Tokyo/Yokohama area for about 30 years.
