Oliver Medzihradsky

Oliver Medzihradsky, MD, MPH, MSc, is a Research Fellow at the UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI). In this role, Oliver is contributing to ongoing research projects in the elimination-ready setting of Namibia. His current projects center around the development of serologic tools to predict residual foci of malaria transmission, and targeted presumptive treatment with artemisinin-combination therapies as a community-level response to secondary cases of malaria.

Oliver joined the MEI via UCSF’s pediatric infectious diseases fellowship and is dually board-certified in internal medicine and pediatrics. He has worked in public health and clinically in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Mali, and previously practiced as an internal medicine and pediatric hospitalist.

He has an MPH in epidemiology from the University of Michigan and a masters in immunology from the University of Rochester, where he also received his MD.
