We welcome you to Hippocrates Med Review! We hope to provide a world-class forum that showcases a holistic view of medicine as told by the brightest minds in the medical field. Despite medicine’s impact in our lives and the world, there has been little attempt to help break the barriers between doctors and researchers and those who are affected by medicine on a daily basis. We hope to fill this niche by providing a forum for students and faculty to share their groundbreaking medical work.

As a result, we have created the Hippocrates Med Review, which will be Hopkins’ only medical student and faculty journal. In the past, medicine was interpreted as nothing more than physicians and drugs. However, in recent years, the term medicine has been broadened to encompass more than just physical health; mental and economic health, through the lens of medicine, are increasingly important to a patient’s quality of life. Through interviews with leading doctors at prestigious universities, we have identified 5 fundamental pillars that medicine stands on today: domestic health, global health, biotechnology, medical humanities, and clinical medicine.

We want to spread this idea of new medicine and how it encompasses more than just clinical studies. Although clinical studies are undoubtedly a huge part of medicine and drug delivery, it has become clear that there are many other aspects to medicine. In this journal, we plan on sharing works from prominent doctors and professors from around the world to help inform our audience of current medical news. By creating a forum for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty to share their work, we can help spread our vision of “new medicine”.

From all of us at HMR,

Thank you for joining us on this journey.

Motivated to facilitate medical dialogue between healthcare experts and the general public, he founded the Hippocrates Med Review to establish a platform that intersects the humanistic, political, technological, global, and clinical avenues of medicine. As he continues to expand HMR’s influence in the Hopkins community and other top universities, Rushabh is collaborating with the Public Health Studies Department to create an accredited course called Public Health Change Teams, which offers students an opportunity to partner with Bloomberg School of Public Health faculty to lead projects on pressing health issues. He has passed legislation to place brand-name female hygiene products in restrooms and desks all over campus at Johns Hopkins, engaging the university in a dialogue to address the stigma behind menstrual hygiene products. Outside of HMR, Rushabh is the executive secretary of the Student Government Association, an advocate for Healthleads, and is currently leading the effort to make the Johns Hopkins University a smoke-free campus. A devout believer in the relationship between those in authority and those affected by decisions made by the authority, he is interested in learning the role of different governmental sectors on healthcare and how this affects key stakeholders in medicine. When he’s not eating at Pizza Studio, Rushabh loves to jam out to Drake, Shakira, Prince Royce, and Blackbear.
