He is a board certified proctologist practicing in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Alexander Lam is from Houston, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M University where he double majored in biomedical science and entomology. Lam is currently serving in the United States Air Force and said, “Nearly every service member that I’ve come across from infantryman to pilots have vouched for the benefits of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment. As a future military physician, it’s a tool I look forward to using often.” At BCOM, Lam has been actively involved in the Student Government Association and the Military Medicine Club. He also participates in activities for the Pediatrics Club and the American Medical Women’s Association. He is interested in exploring the roles of entomology (study of bugs and insects) and anthropology in medicine, and through his career in the Air Force, he hopes to become a pilot and to one day be a flight surgeon/astronaut for NASA.
