Overview
Rohan Khazanchi, M.D., M.P.H., is a health justice advocate, health services researcher, and internist-pediatrician. He is a resident physician in the Harvard Internal Medicine & Pediatrics (“Med-Peds”) combined residency program at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Boston Medical Center. He is also a research affiliate at the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, where he studies the health impacts of structural adversity in childhood and adolescence, racial/spatial inequities in access to care, and intersections of structural racism and carceral systems with clinical care, public health, and health policy.

Rohan’s work broadly aims to advance health equity for and with marginalized populations. His public service experience includes collaborating with the NYC Health Department’s Coalition to End Racism in Clinical Algorithms (CERCA) as lead author of CERCA’s inaugural report and with the Minnesota and Massachusetts state Medicaid programs on re-entry coverage for incarcerated adults. He has provided expert testimony to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on antiracism in medicine and regulatory interventions to redress the harms of race-based clinical algorithms. He is currently a Strategic Advisory Council member for the Rise to Health Coalition, a national initiative led by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to embed equity across the healthcare ecosystem, and an appointed commissioner on The Lancet’s Commission on Antiracism in Solidarity.

As a medical and public health student at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (M.D. '22) and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health (M.P.H. '21), Rohan co-founded a longitudinal community-engaged structural competency curriculum, conducted research on race and place-based inequities in HIV and COVID-19 outcomes, worked with the Health, Homelessness, and Criminal Justice Lab to inform local and state COVID-19 policies using cross-sector data, and was Co-Director of the Clinical Problem Solvers Antiracism in Medicine podcast series. As a voting delegate in the AMA House of Delegates (2018-present) and member of the Council on Medical Education (2020-22), he has led the writing and adoption of seminal policies on structural racism as a public health threat, racial essentialism, reparative interventions redress the harms of the Flexner Report on health workforce diversity and race-based medicine on health & economic outcomes, and closing the racial wealth gap, each of which helped fundamentally reshape the organization’s coalitional efforts to advance health equity.
