Dr. Gulati

Dr. Gulati is a physician advisor, the medical director for clinical effectiveness, and an assistant professor in the division of general internal medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She is secretary of SHM’s Maryland chapter.

Undergraduate education: London.

Medical school: Dayanand Medical School, Ludhiana, Punjab, India.

Notable: An academic hospitalist, Dr. Gulati has been awarded the Physician-Colleague of the Year Award for her efforts to promote communication between doctors, nurses, and other nonphysician staff, as well as the Theodore Woodward Teaching Award for her exemplary teaching and patient care. One example of her unique teaching style is taking her residents and students to the patient placement center so that they understand the reality and importance of a timely discharge and how throughput affects an 800-bed facility. As a mentor for the first chief resident focused on patient safety and quality at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, she designed and developed a curriculum catered to the chief resident’s needs.

FYI: A fan of the outdoors, Dr. Gulati enjoys kayaking and loves to travel. She has camped in the Sahara and visited the Scandinavian peninsula. When not outdoors, she spends her time reading; her current favorite book is The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande, MD.

Quotable: “I am honored to be a fellow in the Society of Hospital Medicine, as it gives credence to how I focus on patient care from beginning to end, and how it is essential to work with a multidisciplinary team to provide patient-centered, quality care across the continuum of care.”
