Aryan Sharif, DOCaldwell Program
Class of 2025
Born and raised in the Silicon Valley of California; Aryan Sharif MD realized at a young age that the culture of a tech-centered community wasn’t for him. He had the chance to explore a number of different communities in the state of California. After moving to almost a dozen new cities, his family finally settled in Berkeley. Residing in farming communities in California and joining numerous volunteering efforts in rural communities, both domestically and internationally, Aryan noticed some of the unique challenges associated with living in the countryside.
This lead to his passion for increasing healthcare accessibility in rural communities, especially with Latinx individuals. As a result, this guided him to pursue his medical education at A.T. Still University in Arizona. The time with the Full Circle Health family will help him accomplish these goals (and have fun doing it!).
While Aryan can find something enjoyable about almost anything, some of his favorite hobbies include rock climbing, playing board games, and chasing sunsets!
