Vinayak Nikam

Vinayak is committed to exploring the intersecting worlds of medicine and business with dynamic and inspiring students from across the schools at Penn. In college, he saw time and again how a group of driven individuals could come together to make an impact in healthcare and, as a biology and history major, enjoyed taking a fresh look at old problems in order to come to exciting solutions; to him, Penn HealthX provides a unique forum in which to do both. Drawing on those previous experiences and building on his studies as an MD/MBA candidate, he works to help students broaden their education and gain the skills and knowledge to impact the world of healthcare, both inside and outside of the hospital.
