Akira Saito, MD

Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine

UH 1634
Indianapolis, IN


I grew up in Galveston, TX and started my medical education at University of Kentucky. I moved to Indianapolis in 2015 for my internal medicine residency and quickly came to love the city and the people I worked with. I was truly ecstatic to be able to stay at IU for my GI fellowship. My career goal is to become an academic gastroenterologist with a focus on upper GI motility and eosinophilic GI disorders. As for my hobbies and interests, I enjoy going for long runs near Eagle Creek Park (one of the largest city parks in the US), trying out new restaurants or breweries around town with my wife, and cooking for friends and family.
