Brandon Chin , PT
Born and raised in San Francisco, Brandon developed an early interest in athletics while participating in sports such as basketball, soccer, and tae kwon do growing up. After attending a mentorship program held by medical students at University of California, San Francisco, he was inspired to start his journey into sports medicine.
In 2014, he graduated from University of the Pacific in Stockton, California with a degree in Athletic Training where he had the opportunity to work with Division I collegiate and minor league ice hockey athletes. Reflecting on his experience, he discovered that injury rehabilitation was his favorite aspect of sports medicine and opted to continue his education by pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy. During this process, he was invited to Stanford University to be an athletic trainer for a program hosted by Team USA Women’s Field Hockey.
Brandon returned to University of the Pacific as a student in their accelerated two-year DPT program in 2017. During the clinical rotation selection process, Brandon leveraged his experience as an athletic trainer to secure his final rotation with the San Francisco Giants at their spring training facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. There, he partnered with sports medicine staff to coordinate daily treatments and with team physicians to establish post-operative rehab protocols to facilitate return to sport.
Today, he aspires to continue providing quality care to empower his patients and help them return to what they enjoy doing most. He remains dedicated to improving the health and performance of all athletes, whether if they are weekend warriors, barbell athletes, or sports focused. In his free time, Brandon enjoys being active outdoors, watching the Golden State Warriors, and spending time with his girlfriend cooking and baking.
