Trevor C. Hunt
I am a fourth-year MD student at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University seeking to help others navigate the complex realms of health and illness via a career in academic urologic surgery.
Currently, I am completing final coursework while preparing to join the Department of Urology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in June 2021. Most recently, I completed a one-year urologic oncology research fellowship at the University of Utah’s Huntsman Cancer Institute prior to beginning my final year at Brody. At Huntsman, I was leading a variety of exciting projects in both clinical and health services research.
Concurrently, I work with Brody’s Department of Surgery on a project related to racial disparities in surgical patients. As a member of Brody’s Research Distinction Track, I also conduct bench research to investigate mitochondrial dysfunction in the bladder in a mouse model.
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 serve on the executive council of the American Physician Scientists Association as the current 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.
I founded and continue to lead the award-winning Pirates Vs. Cancer charity organization, which has raised over $105,000 for pediatric oncology needs in eastern North Carolina since its inception in 2017. To find out more, please visit us on Facebook or Twitter.
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 @TrevorHunt_ECU.
