Radhika Jain, MD
Global Medicine Fellow

Radhika earned her Bachelor of Arts in History and Science at Harvard University and then returned to her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri for medical school at Washington University. While leading the student-run free clinic and investigating contraception utilization at a community clinic for youth in foster care, she witnessed firsthand countless structural inequities driving poor health outcomes and disparate patient experiences in the health care system. She was inspired to pursue a career in general medicine and social justice, and has since completed her residency in Internal Medicine-Primary Care at Massachusetts General Hospital. In residency, she volunteered at the MGH Asylum Clinic and Greater Boston Legal Services, and co-led the Internal Medicine Resident COVID Equity and Advocacy Committee during the surge in April 2020. She was also a member of CivicRx, a resident-led group that mobilized hundreds of hospital employees to make voting plans and discuss safe voting with patients. During the MGH Global Medicine Fellowship, Radhika looks forward to working at Boston Healthcare for the Homeless and the Indian Health Service in Rosebud, South Dakota. She subsequently plans to practice primary care in a community-based setting committed to underserved patients.
