Changing the Face of Medicine

Rohan is studying Public Health Medicine at SPH and is a staunch advocate for health equity. As a first-year medical student, he joined the American Medical Association (AMA) and co-led two resolutions that were adopted by the 600-member AMA House of Delegates (“Racism as a Public Health Threat” and “Racial Essentialism in Medicine”). When asked why he wanted to study public health and medicine, he answered:

“The care I will provide [as a clinician], though important, will likely only determine 10-20% of my future patients’ health outcomes. My dual-degree training has helped me build the humility and confidence to intentionally consider the social and structural forces outside the walls of my clinic that determine the other 80-90% of their health.”

— Rohan, Public Health Medicine, Dual Degree MD / MPH
