CHICAGO — The American Medical Association (AMA) today announced the election of Tani Malhotra, MD, as the resident/fellow of the AMA International Medical Graduates Section (IMGS). In her new role, Dr. Malhotra will share the resident perspectives and advocate for those physicians. The IMG Section works to increase the impact of the IMGs in organized medicine and represent their views in the AMA House of Delegates.
“It is my pleasure to congratulate Dr. Malhotra on her election as resident/fellow representative to the AMA-IMG Section,” said AMA President Barbara L. McAneny, M.D. “The AMA is a powerful ally for physicians and a leading force in the effort to improve the health of the nation, and I look forward to working with Dr. Malhotra on behalf of America’s physicians and patients.”
"I am excited to represent the residents and fellows with diverse medical education histories,” Dr. Malhotra said. “With a projected shortage of over 100,000 doctors by 2030, the International Medical Graduates Section is working towards developing pathways to assimilate foreign trained doctors into the U.S medical system. I hope to be able to engage more IMG residents and fellows to come up with innovative solutions for our foreseeable physician shortage."
Dr. Malhotra completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency at Wellspan York Hospital in York, Penn. During her time there she served on several hospital committees and was awarded a grant for her research on substance use disorders in pregnancy. She was on the Board of Directors for the York County Medical Society and is currently the resident/fellow trustee for the Pennsylvania Medical Society. Dr. Malhotra serves on the PAMED Opioid Task Force and was a contributor to the Pennsylvania Department of Health's Guidelines for Medically Assisted Treatment of Opioid Use Disorders in Pregnancy. She was recently recognized as one of the "Top Physicians Under 40" by Pennsylvania Medical Society.
Dr. Malhotra received her bachelor's degree from University of Western Ontario and graduated summa cum laude from American University of Antigua College of Medicine. After completing her preliminary internship at Metrohealth Medical Center she completed her residency at Wellspan York Hospital. She recently returned to Cleveland to continue her training in high risk obstetrics.
