Krishna Patel

Krishna came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the University of Pennsylvania, where he majored in Biology and Healthcare Management. Before starting at Icahn in 2020, Krishna also completed a Masters in Evidence-Based Social Policy at the University of Oxford.

While at Icahn, Krishna founded the Health & Education Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building partnerships between health systems and school districts and creating supportive communities for students and families. He was also engaged with the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP) student-run free clinic as Finance Chair and Clinic Manager. He was also very involved in clinical research having published several papers in oncology, global health, and primary care. In 2023, he participated in the Fellowship at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) and was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS).

Krishna is extremely grateful for the unwavering support from his parents, brother, family, friends, and countless Sinai faculty, all of whom inspired him to be the best possible advocate for patients.
