Teaching Global Health: Dr. Gunisha Kaur

“When people ask me why I’ve stayed in the Cornell system as an undergraduate, as a medical student, resident, physician, and now as faculty, it’s because of the support for innovative ideas and individuals,” said Dr. Kaur, an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. “The leadership here sees somebody like me, an immigrant with refugee roots, who is dedicated to the idea of marrying medicine and human rights, and provides me with as much support and mentorship and space that I need to develop those ideas and trailblaze a new pathway.”
