Dr. Kenneth K. Tram is a board-certified UC Irvine Health specialist in internal medicine and geriatric medicine. He specializes in the care of aging adults, with a particular clinical interest in the care of complex and chronic conditions and diseases, as well as memory loss.
Tram earned his medical degree at UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar.
In addition to his training as an internist, Tram pursued a fellowship in geriatrics at UCLA School of Medicine to prepare himself to treat the health concerns of growing numbers of baby boomer patients.
A young baby boomer himself, he recognized that a variety of issues—including memory, falls, dizziness and incontinence—affect patients as they get older. “Memory is probably the biggest issue,” he says. “I’ve been very keen to look into different approaches to preserving and enhancing memory as patients get older.”
Tram treats patients of all ages, and finds long-lasting connections to patients particularly rewarding. “Those ongoing relationships give me the most fulfilling sense of accomplishment,” he said. In fact, Tram encourages patients to directly connect with him anytime, and provides them with his cell phone number so that they easily can seek his advice.
