Trevor C. Hunt
I am currently a PGY-1 resident in urologic surgery at University of Rochester Medical Center in my hometown of Rochester, NY. Previously, I earned an MD at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University as a Research Distinction Track scholar. While at Brody, I completed a one-year urologic oncology research fellowship at the University of Utah’s Huntsman Cancer Institute between my third and fourth years of medical school. Looking forward, I plan to continue pursuing my passion for patient care, research, and mentorship via a career in academic urology.
Prior to medical school, I completed my undergraduate degree in sociology at Wake Forest University with an emphasis on the social determinants of health. These studies and the passion I developed for understanding social forces strongly influence my work and interests to this day.
Outside of research, I have served on the executive council of the American Physician Scientists Association as the former MD/DO Member-at-Large. I am also a staff writer for the Student Doctor Network website, previously authoring a monthly research column for health sciences students titled “Research for the Rest of Us”.
During medical school, I founded and led the award-winning Pirates Vs. Cancer charity organization, which has raised over $130,000 for pediatric oncology needs in eastern North Carolina since its inception in 2017.

In my free time, I am an avid downhill skier and am addicted to conquering the challenging game of golf. I’m active on Twitter, and can be best reached at @TrevorHuntMD.
