School of Medicine
Dylan Ratnarajah (M’26) is a first-year medical student at Georgetown University School of Medicine. Growing up in a small town in upstate New York with native roots from the island of Sri Lanka, his interests in medicine led him to seek interactions with diverse patient populations across the globe and explore various local and international health systems. He graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor’s degree in human biology and society, with minors in business and health policy. Through his volunteer work and research projects working with differing refugee and migrant communities, he fostered an interest in both the macro and micro levels of patient care and policy impact. As a future physician, he hopes to build on these experiences and strengthen his cultural competence to combat global health inequities and cater to underserved communities. As a spring 2023 GHI student fellow, Dylan worked with Charles Holmes supporting the Blantyre Prevention Strategy to establish a replicable model of district-based HIV prevention.
