Michael Zhu, MD, cares for adult and senior patients both in hospital (“inpatient” as an attending at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and at Harris Health System’s Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital) as well as in clinic (“outpatient” at UT Physicians). He is committed to bridging this inpatient/outpatient gap to empower his patients, especially those on their post-hospitalization recovery journey.

Dr. Zhu has many fond memories of growing up in the Greater Houston area. Upon completing his undergraduate degree in cell and molecular biology as part of the inaugural class of the Health Science Scholars program at the University of Texas at Austin, he returned to his Houston roots to attend McGovern Medical School. Dr. Zhu then stayed on for his internal medicine residency.
After a deeply rewarding experience caring for his fellow Houstonians, he is grateful for the opportunity to continue to do so now as an Assistant Professor with the Division of General Internal Medicine.

He enjoys medical school/residency education and mentoring students interested in joining the medical profession. Dr. Zhu’s hobbies include photography, hiking, and gardening.
