Yogesh Reddy, MD
When Yogesh Reddy was growing up in Mumbai, India, his idea of achieving success was becoming a professional soccer player. As he got older, Reddy’s natural drive and athleticism served him well on the playing field and contributed to building his determination in sports and academics. Reddy was talented enough to play soccer at a college level. But, despite his love for the game, Reddy had a different goal in mind.
A sports-related injury led to a pause in Reddy’s soccer career, and he realized he could still accomplish great things off the field. Reddy turned his full attention to earning his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)—equivalent to a Doctor of Medicine (MD) in the United States—from Mahatma Gandhi Mission's Medical College in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. After Reddy completed his degree and required rotations, he began work as a researcher for the Public Health Foundation of India.
