Grace Shin, MD, MPH, was born in Ontario, Canada, and was raised in Michigan and Louisiana.  After being elected to the Sigma Xi Honors Research Society and obtaining her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College in Massachusetts, she went on to receive her Medical Degree (MD) at the Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana, concurrently with her Master of Public Health degree (MPH) at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

Dr. Shin completed her internal medicine internship at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, and her residency in general ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).  She then finished her fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus also at UCLA.
