Alexandra Rose, MD

Fellow, Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine UC San Diego Department of Medicine

Dr. Rose was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and spent the majority of her childhood in San Diego, California. She has a passion for liberal arts, which led to a major in film studies in college, but her love of helping others ultimately prompted her to pursue a career in medicine. Baylor College of Medicine provided the foundation for strong clinical skills and knowledge, as well as her first exposure to the intensive care unit. She was inducted into the Gold Humanism Society and Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society during her time there. She ultimately made her way back to Boston for residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center where she continued to enjoy caring for critically ill patients and decided to pursue a career in pulmonary and critical care medicine. She received a teaching award from the Harvard medical students during her last year of residency. At UCSD, Dr. Rose has continued to focus on providing excellent patient care to both pulmonary and critical care patients in the inpatient and outpatient settings. She currently serves on the critical care committee and her research focuses on optimizing care of critically ill patients with liver disease.
