Michael earned his undergraduate degree from Stanford University in Human Biology and was the first undergraduate hired to teach at Stanford Medical School. He attended Balliol College in Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, and then UCSF for medical school, where he founded the Stanford Medical Youth Science Program (SMYSP), which later became the Quest Scholars Program. Michael later co-founded QuestBridge, the nation’s largest recruiter for extremely talented and low-income youth for Ivy League colleges, universities, and employers. QuestBridge now places more talented low-income students than any other non-profit in US history.
