Chris Marfo, MD, MBA
Soccer, basketball and lifting
I was born and raised in Ghana where I attained my early education. Immigrated to the U.S. and completed high school before entering Rutgers University for college and finally to Yale for medical and business school. I am fascinated by health systems as it relates to decisions regarding resource allocation and delivery. I like the variety of training opportunities available within the UW Surgery umbrella in terms of faculty interests and hospitals. I enjoy living in the Northwest even though I’m not much of an outdoor person, Seattle has something for everyone.
