Dr. Colin Zhu is a traveling physician who is Board-Certified in family practice and lifestyle medicine. Passionate about the intersection of medicine, food, and nutrition, Dr. Zhu trained as a chef and a health coach at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition following completion of his medical degree.
In medical practice known as locum tenens, Dr. Zhu has spent the past three years in a series of contract physician roles that include time in Nevada, where he worked with a Native American population at a tribal-run outpatient clinic, a Veterans Affairs system in Louisiana and a county medicine department in Santa Cruz, California that runs its own homeless shelter. A fourth position found him at a community health clinic in Seattle with a diverse refugee population. Currently, he works in Los Angeles.
His traveling work has been featured in publications such as The DO, MedPage Today, and Stat News. To share his unique blend of medical knowledge with a wider audience, Dr. Zhu launched TheChefDoc website, an online wellness and lifestyle education platform which has been featured in Jarry Magazine, OWaves, and Brit + Co. Colin is also the author of "Thrive Medicine: How To Cultivate Your Desires and Elevate Your Life," released in December 2017.
