Prerak Juthani MD, MBA
Prerak is a bay area native and completed his undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, where he double-majored in Molecular Biology and Public Health. He then went on to Yale where he was able to bridge his love of medicine and entrepreneurship by completing the joint MD-MBA program. Prerak’s first stint in entrepreneurship was when he created an organic chemistry board game called REACT! (reactgame.com) before starting medical school. From there, he then also created a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@PrerakJuthani) to increase the transparency of what it’s like to be a medical student. Currently, Prerak is a PGY-1 in Internal Medicine at Stanford and cofounder of The Kindness Coalition. He’s excited to get a chance to be on the front lines and work to positively impact the culture of healthcare!
