He completed his undergraduate degree at Haverford College in Pennsylvania, where he competed on the track and cross country teams, winning 11 conference championships. After graduating with Phi Beta Kappa honors, he went on to earn his medical degree at New York University, and then completed his pediatric residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut.
