Zachary Haberman, MD
Emergency Medicine

Medical School: Keck School of Medicine of USC
Residency:
Los Angeles County + USC Emergency Medicine, Graduated 6/2019
Fellowship:
Emory University/Centers for Disease Control Joint Fellowship in Medical Toxicology, Atlanta, Ga; 2005
Hobbies/Interests:
Skiing, slow pitch softball (now that my baseball days are behind me), ping pong, traveling off the beaten track, finding the best cheap eats. Somehow, I wound up a huge fan of 3 of the most hated teams in sports- the USC Trojans, New England Patriots, and New York Yankees.
Random/Fun Fact: In order to support myself as a pre-med ski bum, I worked as a Subway mascot. Yes, I danced around in a giant sandwich costume. The highlight of my career was offering a coupon for a buy one, get one free 6 inch sub to former Yankees 1st Baseman and LA Dodgers manager Don Mattingly (he totally declined). Sadly, I got a job as an EMT in Snowmass, CO and had to retire from mascothood.
