USP Profile

Pavan Tankha
2001 Pre-Medicine, BS
Current Employer: Medical Student

Pavan Tankha can’t remember a time when he didn’t want to become a physician. So he passed up several larger universities to attend USciences—specifically for its high percentage of students accepted into medical school and the strong science focus. As a USciences Pharmacology and Toxicology student, Tankha had the chance to discover another passion while volunteering as a day camp instructor in a medically underserved area. He went on to become the director of a student-run Health Clinic providing free medical care to the uninsured. It’s part of a lifelong desire to “just help people,” Tankha says. “That’s what medicine is all about.”
