Dr. Rangarajan grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, but has considered Ann Arbor home for the last 15 years. She received her B.S. in Political Science (with high honors) and General Biology from the University of Michigan in 2006, and went on to obtain a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2008. After a year as a research assistant in the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine (CBSSM) at the University of Michigan, Dr. Rangarajan went to medical school at the University of Illinois, graduating in 2013. She completed her Internal Medicine residency and Geriatric Medicine fellowship at the combined Med/Ger program at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee in 2017. During her fellowship year, Dr. Rangarajan was elected as a housestaff representative to the Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC), and had the opportunity to actively participate in hospital administration and leadership in a large academic medical center.
Dr. Rangarajan’s clinical interests include inpatient geriatric care and transitions of care, and she will be working in the Acute Care for Elders (ACE unit), subacute care, and hospital consults. Her other interests include health policy, quality improvement and high-value care, and women in leadership. Dr. Rangarajan is a rabid Big Ten college football fan (often wrangling with her older brother and friends who are Ohio State Buckeyes!), and also enjoys technology, hiking (particularly in the beautiful Michigan autumn), and spending time with family and friends in Ann Arbor’s many delicious restaurants.
