He is the author/co-author of over 150 journal articles, book chapters and published abstracts. He currently serves as Co-Editor of Reviews for Clinical Chemistry, Associate Editor for Laboratory Investigation, and is a member of the Editorial Board of Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. His research has resulted in 13 issued U.S. patents on cancer diagnostics, cancer therapeutics and nanotechnology.

Dr. Park’s medical training began in the accelerated BS/MD program at the Pennsylvania State University and Jefferson Medical College. During medical school he was a Gibbon Scholar in Thomas Jefferson University's combined MD/PhD program. After medical school he was a pathology resident and chief resident in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. His pathology residency was followed by a fellowship in gastrointestinal and liver pathology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is certified by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (molecular diagnostics) as well as the American Board of Pathology (clinical informatics, clinical pathology and anatomic pathology).
