Internal Medicine, Brown University/Rhode Island Hospital

About Me

I was born and raised in Pullman, Washington and have been able to call Eastern Washington home for my entire life! I am a first-generation college graduate from Washington State University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology, summa cum laude, in 2018. I had the opportunity and privilege of continuing my education at Washington State University for medical school as well.

My medical school journey

Along with staying in Washington to learn and apply my medical knowledge, I truly got to know members of the local community. I found the best part of medical school to be the genuine interactions with patients and their families. After interacting with several patients with substance use disorder, I took the initiative to learn more about addiction medicine through clinical research and have published several studies in the field of addiction. I have also been able to create meaningful mentorship with Internal Medicine physicians and have served on leadership committees and volunteer organizations oriented around Internal Medicine.

I truly believe my successes are a reflection of the support and mentorship I have had during my time at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine,” says Brar.

Hopes & Aspirations

I am beyond excited to be going into the field of Internal Medicine with the hopes of further subspecializing in the future. Ultimately, I am looking forward to practicing medicine through a multi-disciplinary team approach and providing the highest level of empathetic, personalized, and evidence-based care for all my patients. I plan on returning to the Pacific Northwest following my training.
