Betty Tu, M.D., '77 and David Tsoong, M.D., have supported UCI for more than a decade. The married couple owns Pinnacle Resources International Inc., a holding company focused on international real estate and senior living.

Tu established a private obstetrics-gynecology practice in Anaheim and, until retiring in 2005, was a clinical professor at USC’s Keck School of Medicine.

Tu earned an MBA in 1999 at UCI’s Paul Merage School of Business and in 2007 was honored with its Lauds & Laurels Distinguished Alumni Award.

Tsoong was a surgical intern at UC Irvine Medical Center and, after orthopedic surgical training in New York, returned to Orange County for private practice. He’s a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons. Tsoong founded and managed Gateway Medical Group, StarCare Medical Group and Pinnacle Health Resources. A former member of UC Irvine Medical Center’s Executive Council, he was on the UC Irvine Foundation’s Board of Ambassadors and is currently a trustee serving on the foundation’s Nomination & Board Development Committee.

Tu and Tsoong are on The Paul Merage School of Business’ Center for Health Care Management & Policy Advisory Board, the Humanities Dean’s Advisory Council, UC Irvine Medical Center’s CEO Advisory Board and the UCI Medal Steering Committee.
