Kavita Chapla, M.D.

GIM Fellow

Everyone is warm, generous and collaborative. I am continually impressed by the way my colleagues turn their passion and creativity into concrete, sustainable outputs with hard work and pragmatism.


My professional interests are continually expanding and evolving in fellowship, but I am passionate about medical humanities, Latinx health, ambulatory education and communication skills. I am the co-host of a podcast (Podcast Against Disease) aimed at increasing information sharing between medical experts and the community.

I spend most of my leisure time cooking vegetarian dishes, being outdoors, playing sports, and having great conversations. Other favorite things include filmmaking, rock climbing, language learning, and art.
