- Ali Khan, M.D., M.P.P. Ali Khan is currently a clinical resident in medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Khan is a native of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, born a few miles down the road at Fairfax Hospital and raised in Herndon, Virginia, where his childhood consisted of rooting for the Redskins, Bullets/Wizards, Capitals, United, Baltimore Orioles and (a recent development) the Nationals - which is probably the basis of his high tolerance for pain and general sorrow. Dr. Khan is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School and the Medical College of Virginia, earning joint M.D. and M.P.P. degrees in 2010. As part of Virginia Commonwealth University's B.S./M.D. program, he completed a B.S. in print journalism in 2005. Beyond the wards, Aliis involved with a number of national organizations, including Doctors for America, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity, Inc. He currently serves on the National Board of Directors of Physicians for Human Rights (PHR). Dr. Khan intends a career working at the intersection of medicine and public service, with an emphasis on domestic health policy and health economics, to better the lives of both his individual patients and society as a whole.
