Vivek Rudrapatna, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor of Medicine; Co-Director of Center for Real-World Evidence

Vivek Rudrapatna obtained his MD and PhD at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, followed by a residency in internal medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and a fellowship in gastroenterology at UCSF. He joined the UCSF faculty in 2020 as a physician scientist. He spends part of his time as a gastroenterologist and inflammatory bowel disease specialist, and spends the remainder as a clinical data science investigator at the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute. His research team develops methods for using clinical data to uncover real-world evidence on treatment effects and advance the goals of precision medicine across use cases.
