    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Jejo Koola joined UCSD faculty in 2017. He received his MD degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and subsequently completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia in 2011. Following residency, Dr. Koola completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Biomedical Informatics through the Department of Veterans Affairs in conjunction with Vanderbilt University.

    Dr. Koola has a joint appointment in Hospital Medicine and Biomedical Informatics. His research interests are in using machine learning to build predictive models utilizing very large observational cohort data. He applies models to improving the care of multi-morbid patients, particularly patients with advanced liver disease.
