Jooyoung studied medicine at Seoul National University in South Korea where he was born and raised. At its teaching hospital, he completed his first residency training in psychiatry. Upon graduation, he joined the Korean armed forces as a psychiatry officer. There he realized that he enjoyed listening to and working with young individuals, more specifically, whose early-life trauma was interfering with their capability to cope with more recent stressors. This experience led him to seek further training in psychodynamic psychiatry, trauma-related disorders, and child-adolescent psychiatry. 


In pursuit of these goals, Jooyoung relocated to the United States and joined the University of Maryland/Sheppard Pratt Psychiatry Residency Program. There he enjoyed not only the clinical training in a wide variety of scenes but also how it was delivered by his enthusiastic teachers. Jooyoung was one of two co-leaders of Movie Night event at his residency program.


Jooyoung is currently training at Cambridge Health Alliance child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship program. He feels grateful to be a part of its mission to care for the underserved and to learn more about psychodynamic psychiatry. Academically, he is also interested in social media and mental health, infoveillance, and suicide prevention.


During his time, Jooyoung enjoys hiking with his family, reading, playing good boardgames, and open water diving.
