Jimmy Le, M.D.
University of New Mexico, School of Medicine; Jimmy was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM. His parents immigrated from Vietnam in search of a better life for their children, and Jimmy made sure that he was able to take all of those opportunities and funnel them into his future in medicine. His childhood interactions with marginalized populations and those of lower socio-economic status fueled his interest in medicine from a young age. He studied Biology and Chemistry at University in New Mexico and spent much of his time outside of school working and volunteering with hospitalized children. He also worked as a nursing assistant on a Geriatric Psychiatry Ward. During medical school, he discovered an interest in women’s health when he spent a summer in a rural mountain town in NM and developed a love of obstetrics. Because of his varied interests in family planning, obstetrics, LGBTQ, and trans-health, he chose family medicine as the perfect avenue to pursue all of these directions. Outside of medicine, Jimmy loves exploring cities through food and coffee, playing volleyball and video games. He has recently developed a passion for cooking, baking, and decorating cakes. He’s anxiously awaiting the day that someone asks him to bake their wedding cake.
