Krsna Kim Kothari

Krsna came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from University of Michigan where he majored in Sociocultural Anthropology, doing her thesis on Intergenerational Spaces between Younger and Older Adults. Before attending Icahn, Krsna worked as a teaching fellow at the High School for Fashion Industries in New York. She entered the MD program in 2019.

While at Icahn, Krsna participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership, the ISMMS student-run free clinic (EHHOP) as a chronic care junior, senior, and then as a teaching senior. She volunteered Human Rights and Social Justice Program as a Remote Evaluation Coordinator. She also co-created a medical school course with two of her student colleagues to pair Pre-Clinical Students with Older Adults in the East Harlem Community to build a legacy project together as an education platform to combat ageism. She was also the co-leader of the Geriatrics and Palliative Care Interest Group.

Krsna would like to thank her family, friends, partner, and mentors in the Geriatrics and Palliative Department at Sinai who have not only inspired but nurtured her interests in the field. She is so excited about continuing her journey in both fields through her residency training in MedPeds at the University of Illinois Chicago Program.
