Physician, Scripps Health
David Savage is a physician at Scripps Health in LaJolla, CA. He grew up in Lindale, a small East Texas town, and chose Austin College because of its friendly community, its liberal arts curriculum, and its reputation for pre-medical preparation. He was a member of the AC Concert Band where he played clarinet, and he graduated in 2007 with majors in computer science and biochemistry. Dr. Savage subsequently worked two years in Dallas as a software developer before starting the MD-PhD program at the UT McGovern Medical School in Houston. He graduated in 2018, completed an internal medicine residency at the Cleveland Clinic and UC San Diego, and then started a hematology-oncology fellowship at Scripps in 2021. In his free time, Dr. Savage enjoys spending time with his family and friends, hiking in the mountains, and traveling the world.
