Mark Moubarek, M.D.

Clinical Informatics Fellow, PGY-6

Medical School:
University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine

University of California Davis, Emergency Medicine

Personal Interests:
Spending time with my 2 dogs, Samwise and Pippin. I am a terrible but enthusiastic golfer. Visiting family and friends in southern California which invariably involves lawn games and BBQ.

Reason for Choosing UC Davis:
Absolutely loved my time as a Resident at UC Davis! I was thrilled with the opportunity to give back to the institution that fostered my growth as a physician and continue serving the community I live in is a dream come true. Being able to do this while being able to continue to deepen my interests and knowledge in a new field (informatics) is exactly what I was looking for in a fellowship program. UC Davis was my top choice and I’m excited for what the future brings!
