Richa Panara, MD (PGY-1) joins the #EmoryIMResidency team from the University of Miami, where she completed a seven-year joint MD program. She is originally from Orlando, Florida and has a younger brother who just began medical school. Dr. Panara is a categorical track intern within Emory’s J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program.
Dr. Panara loves to travel and recently returned from a trip to Thailand and Cambodia. The highlight of her trip was a visit to Changmai, where she got to spend time with elephants.
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Panara plays tennis, paints, and is slowly making her way around the brunch circuit of Atlanta. She is also always looking for new recipes to top her Nutella-filled Funfetti cookies.
