Nominated for his excellent teaching and inspiring mentoring of residents, Rifat is Assistant Professor of Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. Although still relatively early in his career, Rifat has already assisted many residents, fellows, and budding pathologists with their research. He was a cofounder of PathCast, an open-access academic platform that aims to bridge knowledge gaps in pathology by live-streaming lecture series for a global audience. “I am passionate about globalizing medical education and helping to improve patient care in the remotest corners of the world,” says Rifat.
