About the Artist

Bhavik Upadhyay is a First Year Medical Student.

I was born and raised in India and moved to United States more than a decade ago. Prior to starting osteopathic school I worked as a Physician Assistant at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center near Los Angeles. I’m passionate about international medicine and see myself as a Doctor working beyond borders one day. In addition, I love photography and most of these pictures were taken at the medical mission camp to India during winter break of 2015.
