Rohan Khazanchi, M.D., M.P.H., is a health equity advocate, health services researcher, and future internist-pediatrician. He is a resident in the Harvard Internal Medicine & Pediatrics combined residency program at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, and Boston Medical Center.

Rohan's work broadly aims to examine and redress the structural (i.e., health system, community, and policy-level) drivers of health inequity across the life course through research, teaching, and advocacy. He completed medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center ('22), where his M.D. honors thesis interrogated race and place-based inequities in HIV and COVID-19. He is also a graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health ('21), where his M.P.H. practicum experience with the Health, Homelessness, and Criminal Justice Lab leveraged novel cross-sector data to inform COVID-19 policies through collaboration with the Minnesota EHR Consortium. He has been active in health policy, receiving local and national recognition for leading the writing and adoption of landmark American Medical Association resolutions on racism as a public health threat, racial essentialism in medicine, and redressing the harms of the Flexner Report on health workforce diversity.

Rohan currently serves as Co-Director of the Clinical Problem Solvers Antiracism in Medicine podcast series and is a health equity consultant working with the NYC Health Department Chief Medical Officer's Coalition to End Racism in Clinical Algorithms. His ongoing research projects are focused on racial/spatial access to care, cross-sector data linkage for public health surveillance, health utilization and exposure to adverse childhood experiences, and redressing race-based medicine through institution and policy-level interventions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
