Arushi Jauhari, MD

Position: PGY-1

Undergraduate: Brown University 
Medical School: Hofstra/Northwell (GHHS)

Arushi is originally from the small (but mighty!) state of Connecticut. She attended Brown for her undergraduate years, graduating with a major in Applied Mathematics-Biology. After college, she worked in special education, where she interwove her interest in medicine with teaching neurodiverse children. She later moved to New York to pursue her medical degree at Hofstra/Northwell. There, she excitingly led her school’s pediatrics interest group and met incredible mentors and pediatric patients along the way. She is particularly passionate about exploring maternal-infant health and their impact on subsequent child development. During the interview trail, Arushi was looking for a medium-sized program that emphasized a strong sense of community in the setting of a rigorous clinical training experience. She felt Brown not only had these attributes, but also stood out with its residency leadership and advocacy opportunities. She is thrilled to return to Rhode Island to explore the ocean state’s culinary scene further! During her free time, you can find her spending time with family, reading with a warm cup of chai, adventuring to a new pizza joint, or befriending a dog.
