Stephen Leung, M.D.

Chief Resident for the Ann Arbor VA Hospital
Class of 2021
Rush Medical College of Rush University Medical Center


My name is Stephen and I’m originally from Cupertino, CA. I graduated from Rush Medical College and wanted to stay in the Midwest for residency. When I was applying for residency, I was looking for a program that offered a wide array of training experiences and I found that at the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor VA hospital systems. I was interested in fellowships in addiction, consultation-liaison, and forensics and chose U-M because they offer all the accredited fellowships. In addition to providing a robust clinical training, the residency program has given me numerous opportunities at professional development including research projects and the healthcare administrations scholars program. During my spare time, I enjoy running through the Arboretum, playing tennis with my co-residents, checking out the foodie scene in downtown Ann Arbor, and going to rock concerts in Detroit.
