Dr. Tran is from Wichita, Kansas where she received her medical training at the University of Kansas. Drawn to the complexity of the entire human body, she went on to complete her Internal Medicine Residency at Baylor Scott & White in Temple, Texas. After encountering numerous patients with undiagnosed sleep apnea and its complications, she developed an interest in sleep disorders. Realizing the importance of sleep and how little it is mentioned in practice, she decided do a fellowship in Sleep Medicine which she completed at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Tran has a strong passion for learning and teaching. Her clinical practice emphasizes patient education and involvement. Part of her decision to come to UTSW was to be closer to her family, but was also drawn to the strong academic integrity and great patient care that UTSW holds. She is excited to join the amazing group of sleep providers at UTSW and is honored to be a part of their growth. Dr. Tran’s interests outside of medicine include baking, reading, board games and learning new hobbies.
