Rahul Dadwani

University of York Postgraduate Award, University of York - Economics

After graduating from Baylor University with a B.A. in University Scholars in 2017, Rahul began school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, where he is currently a 4th year medical student. At Pritzker, Rahul has engaged in research focused on the intersection of health policy and health economics. Additionally, he has been a student-leader through the Choosing Wisely initiative, which seeks to incorporate value-based principles into medical education. Following medical school, Rahul plans to pursue a combined medicine-paediatrics residency in order to care for both children and adults with childhood chronic illness. He is excited to participate in the Fulbright programme this next year, through which he will travel to the University of York to obtain a MSc in Health Economics. He hopes this experience will enable him to improve the care for individuals with childhood chronic illness and provide him with the skills to develop better ways to measure quality of life in paediatric populations. Aside from his academic pursuits, Rahul is excited to take advantage of beautiful countryside of Yorkshire, exploring the surrounding natural parks while making sure to social distance safely!
