About Henry Del Rosario

I am a Filipino-American from the midwest. I double-majored in Molecular & Cellular Biology and English at the University of Illinois, obtained my Doctor of Medicine from Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University, and am currently a practicing family medicine resident at West Suburban Medical Center in Chicago. For me, there are three desires I want to fulfill with my short life: to explore, to create, and to serve.

Family medicine is the specialty that can achieve my aspirations. The beauty of family medicine comes from seeing patients from birth to death, in the clinic and in the hospital, and often times the opportunity to care for multiple members of the same family! As of now, I am lead to 1) underserved medicine (especially of minorities, immigrants, poor), 2) inpatient medicine, 3) medical education (of residents and medical students, 4) maternal and prenatal care, and 5) global health.

Although I am driven by health care disparities, I am interested in global health simply because cultures and languages are fun to explore and learn. Moreover, I have a passion for art and literature and hope to integrate the humanities into my medical career. As a doctor you are privy to some of the most intimate, vulnerable, and beautiful aspects of human experience. Entrusted with such a privilege, I am excited to see where life and God will lead me.
