Miguel Millares Chavez, MD


I was born in Mexico and came to the US with my parents as undocumented immigrants when I was three years old. I grew up in Southern California where I lived most of my life. After graduation from high school I enlisted in the Air Force and shortly after was accepted to the US Air Force Academy where I earned a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. After graduation I served as a Civil Engineering Officer for 5 years and was stationed in Guam, Korea, and England. I completed my medical training at the University of California San Francisco before coming to Yale for Neurosurgery residency. My interest include health equity, expanding care to underserved populations, and novel minimally invasive approaches to surgical interventions.
