Esha Khurana, MD

  • Family Medicine/Psychiatry

Esha Khurana MD, MPH is a PGY3 FM/psych resident. Born and raised in West Chester, PA, she’s a Pennsylvania native who grew up listening to stories about her family’s displacement following partition in India, stories about post-colonial India where she traveled with family, and accounts from her parents, who are first generation immigrants. She quickly developed an interest in issues of economic, environmental and health justice as a result of her time spent between cultures and people witnessing disparities. She attended Northwestern and studied Science in Human Culture/Global health and later attended the University of Pennsylvania for medical school, where she obtained a Master’s in Public health. There she continued to work in global health in Botswana, Guatemala, and India and with refugee and immigrant populations in Philadelphia. Her interests include community-based participatory public health interventions, palliative care, narrative medicine, as well as culturally sensitive and trauma-informed care of marginalized populations. In her free time, she enjoys writing, reading, exploring Pittsburgh’s many outdoor spaces, and a good cup of tea with good conversation. She’s excited to continue her work crossing disciplines and specialties in McKeesport.
