The four years intensive in-patient training prepared Dr. Shen for all in-hospital and intensive care level sicknesses for adults, children and newborn. The affiliate system of UCLA School of Medicine enabled him a wide variety of clinical experience, including caring for children with unique and difficult inheritable, developmental and hormonal diseases. Dr. Shen also spent several months working within the USC School of Medicine hospitals in medical care for pregnant women, bone joint and sports related ailments, as well as their dermatology services.
