Sunpreet Singh, DO
Western University College of Osteopathic Medicine

My name is Sunpreet Singh, but everyone calls me Sunny, partly because it is easier to pronounce and partly because it sums up my disposition. I grew up on the East coast and attended Rutgers University for my undergraduate and graduate education. I moved to sunny California in order to attend medical school at Western University of Health Sciences. I went into medical school with an open mind about which specialty to choose, trying my best to understand the culture of each specialty. When I had my third-year clerkship in psychiatry, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. My ability to connect with patients and create a positive change in their mental health, were the driving forces behind my desire to be a psychiatrist. As a medical student I continued with research, linking the fields of psychiatry and oncology in order to bolster my interest in the field. I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity as a fourth-year medical student to rotate at Loma Linda, which created the foundation for my desire to be a part of this team. Even as a medical student, I felt as if I was part of the Loma Linda family. The combination of having a strong academic base, with a multidisciplinary approach to care and a loving work environment made Loma Linda a clear choice in a program that I would like to match into. Having had a background in Anthropology, I have always been keenly interested in understanding the relationship between mental health and culture. This perspective is further bolstered at our program, where we strive to understand and incorporate the cultural and spiritual background of our patients into our care. Aside from being passionate about psychiatry, I have a passion for the fine arts. Whenever I visit a new city, going to the local art museum is like a pilgrimage for me. Likewise, I dabble in painting and have been a part of an Artist Collective during college. I also have a fondness for Indian cinema, from classics to modern works.

To explore the intersection of mental health and barriers to healthcare, she helped lead the Structural Competency curriculum in her medical school, which teaches students how invisible political, economical structures in our society affect patient presentation, and treatment.
