Desiree Albano, DO, Chief Resident

Birth Place: Sacramento, California
Medical School: Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine


Dr. Albano is a PGY4 at Sparrow.   From Desiree - "I'm originally from northern California but grew up all over the place since my dad was in the Air Force for 20 years. I did undergrad at UC Berkeley in California and moved to Kansas City, MO for medical school. I say that travel is in my blood because we moved a lot growing up and I actually spent most of my childhood in Japan (5-10y/o). So far my favorite places are Hawaii, Kenya, and Thailand. I spend a lot of my free time outdoors hiking, camping, riding my peloton, and exploring new cities. I love to eat and I'm a huge sucker for cute coffee shops! I am excited to be at Sparrow and really believe that at the end of this experience I will be more than prepared to fly the coop! This will be a crazy year but I hope you all end up exactly where you want to be :)"
