Biography

In 2011, Yi Li obtained her MD from Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, followed by a one-year internship at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. In 2016, she completed a four-year Diagnostic Radiology residency at UCSF. Li was a 2016 recipient of the Margulis Society Outstanding Resident Research Award for her excellence in research during residency. She served as chief fellow in Neuroradiology, completing her neuroradiology fellowship in 2017 and clinical instructorship in 2018. In 2018, Li received the Outstanding Fellow/Instructor Teaching Award from the UCSF radiology residents for her contributions toward UCSF resident education. In July 2018, Li became an Assistant Professor in the Neuroradiology Section. Li’s focus within neuroradiology is pediatric neuroimaging.
