Post Grad Trainee 3
Kartik Sidhar grew up in West Bloomfield, Michigan, before traveling to Ann Arbor to earn his undergraduate degree in Sociology and General Biology and his medical degree from the University of Michigan. As an undergraduate, Kartik began working with the University of Michigan Intergroup Relations program, where he helped facilitate dialogues to explore social identity as it relates to justice, privilege, and bias. He continued this work throughout his undergrad career, eventually being hired to facilitate an orientation workshop on social identity and diversity for the School of Dentistry, and into medical school, where he co-developed a four-week dialogue series around social identity and social disparity for other medical students. This experience led him to complete an elective rotation at FQHCs around metro Detroit during his fourth year. Kartik also spent a summer in northern Michigan completing a rural preceptorship, and he traveled to New Delhi, India for a GI rotation. Other medical interests that helped draw Kartik to Family Medicine include sports medicine, palliative care, inpatient medicine, and procedures. In his free time, Kartik enjoys biking, hiking, watching TV, and eating pizza.
