More About Me:  I am excited to join the UMASS team. ID is a specialty that has such a profound impact on patient care and community health. I am a clinician at heart, interested in antibiotic stewardship, infectious in the immunocompromised host and tropical diseases.

Name: Subtain Zia, DO

Hometown: I was born in Lahore, Pakistan and have spent the majority of my life in Connecticut.
Medical School:  I went to University of Connecticut for undergrad, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for medical school, and back to UConn for residency.
More About Me:   I absolutely loved my interview experience at UMass, the culture and the people, access to unique rotations, comprehensive transplant service, and exposure to diverse pathophysiology that I have already come to appreciate as a fellow.  My professional aspirations are yet to be determined but I look forward to exploring different aspects of ID including clinical work, infection control, antibiotic stewardship, global and public health, HIV-primary care, and transplant.  In my spare time, I like exploring new cuisines (and attempting to cook), traveling, watching football (Go Pats!) and movies, in addition to reading about history.  My wife and I also sponsor a baby elephant, Tamiyoi, at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya who continues to thrive and will one day be back in the wild.
