Punit graduated from Tufts University with a BS in Biopsychology and Greek and Latin Studies. After a few years of clinical work in ambulances and emergency rooms of Boston, he decided to pursue a Master’s degree to better prepare for medical school. Punit wrote his Master’s thesis about the association between sports participation and psychiatric symptoms in children, and hopes to contribute positively to the discourse around screening and intervention for pediatric psychiatric disorders. He is a current MD candidate at Boston University.
Having decided midway through college that he wanted to become a doctor, Punit learned firsthand just how much optimization and planning the medical school application process takes (and how to succeed after a late start). He combines scholastic expertise on both premedical content and the MCAT (scoring in the 100th percentile) with the logistical lessons of the medical school admissions cycle.
Outside of school and work, Punit enjoys baking bread, playing board games, and studying strange texts. You can often find him running along the Charles toward an interesting coffee shop or new personal fitness record.
