Kush was accepted into UC San Diego’s BS/MD program in 2014. He was also accepted into UC Berkeley and UCLA. Despite being offered the prestigious regents scholarship to both universities, he simply couldn’t pass up a guaranteed admission to the UC San Diego School of Medicine. As an undergrad at UC San Diego, he studied economics and worked with engineers to develop a low-cost HIV diagnostic platform. Nowadays, having graduated, he focuses on epilepsy and HIV research. He will matriculate to the UC San Diego School of Medicine in the fall of 2018.
