Dustin Avery Brinker could read before he could talk. Originally from Pennsylvania, he attended Ursinus College, where he studied French, and then matriculated into NYU Grossman School of Medicine in 2017. Dustin’s passion for underserved healthcare manifested in his undergraduate medical education through his work with the NYC Free Clinic, acting as Co-Director of Management during the preclinical stage, and later as an Executive Clinical Coordinator. His passion for the liberal arts and student advocacy pushed him to work in the Student Affairs offices of both his undergrad and medical school, culminating in his matriculation into the joint NYU-Maastricht MHPE (Master of Health Professions Education) program in 2020, the third medical student to ever do so. He graduated from both NYUGSoM and Maastricht University in 2022 and began a research-track psychiatry residency at Zucker Hillside Hospital of Northwell Health. Intersecting with his goal of being an Academic Psychiatrist, Dustin's scholarship centralizes around writing skill development and the role of literature in medical education.
