Alex Koral, MD, BS

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Gastroenterology)

I am a pediatric gastroenterologist with an interest in eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases. I enjoy working with children and find their passion for life invigorating. Similarly, I have always enjoyed working with students—their passion for learning to heal is refreshing. Some of us come into medicine as the next member in a family tree of physicians, some of us are skilled in biological sciences and want to use those skills to help, most of us are somewhere in between. Whatever our background, we come into medicine with a common goal, to help. Then when we get here, we find there are many paths one can take to achieve this goal. As I coach, I look forward to helping students figure out how they want to apply their passion to help and to heal; making sure they are learning the skills they need to become successful physicians, and getting the opportunities to apply those skills in the areas that will lead to a meaningful and fulfilling career.
