Gaurab believes that clinicians have a professional responsibility to develop their capacity to be agents of social change. Clinicians have a unique vantage point from which they can see the ways that social, economic, and political factors can influence the delivery of health care. They can play an important role in promoting a health care system that recognizes human dignity and health care as a human right. Gaurab develops health equity curriculum and community organizing programming for health care professionals.

Gaurab is a primary care physician and instructor at Harvard Medical School and Co-Director of the Center for Health Equity Education & Advocacy (CHEEA) who believes that medical education has an obligation to inspire, empower, and train students and residents to be capable of making social change and promoting equity. He has trained in fields of medicine, public health, international relations, community organizing, and global health.
