Sudipta "Nila" Devanath is a third year resident at Yale Internal Medicine Primary Care residency program. Nila attended the University of Pittsburgh as an undergraduate and medical student. After two years at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM), Nila left to pursue her J.D. at Harvard Law. There, she worked as a student attorney for domestic abuse survivors and was appointed to the Harvard Sexual Assault Prevention Task Force, where she helped to create new prevention policies for the university. She returned to UPSOM to complete her M.D. and later matched at Yale New Haven Hospital in the Internal Medicine Primary Care track. She hopes to pursue a career in national healthcare policy, focusing on access and affordability.
Briefly: I’m a PGY-6 neurologic surgery resident at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, an Editor of Social Media for the Journal of Neurosurgery (@TheJNS), and a master's degree candidate in the Clinical and Translational Science program at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. My previous educational experiences include undergraduate in the honors program at the University of Virginia, a post-baccalaureate premedical curriculum at Columbia University, and medical school in the honors program at NYU School of Medicine. As a medical student, my basic science projects focused on tumor immunology, in particular the role of toll-like receptors in neoplastic transformation, which I explored as a member of the S. Arthur Localio Laboratory.
Within neurosurgery, my academic and clinical interests fall largely within complex cranial surgery, encompassing a broad range of topics at the nexus of skull base and cerebrovascular practices including neuroanatomy, neuroradiology, radiosurgery, neurotrauma, and interesting case reports. My master's thesis focuses on novel statistical models for dosimetric prediction of clinical outcome after stereotactic radiosurgery for pituitary disease, under the direction of Dr. Bruce Pollock, and is anticipated to be followed by a PGY-6 chief resident year, and a PGY-7 in-folded skull base neuro-oncology fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Michael Link. Following residency graduation, I'm honored to have accepted a position as a cerebrovascular and skull base fellow with Dr. Michael Lawton at the Barrow Neurological Institute, 2021-2022.
My involvement in organized neurosurgery focuses on resident education and the role of social media in expanding neurosurgical practice and education (@Graffeo). This commitment to service includes local work as a member of our department's Research Committee, Resident Council, and Curriculum Task Force, as well as nationally, as a CNS Resident Fellow, the director of the NREF Social Media Ambassadors, and a member and IT Director for the Young Neurosurgeons Committee (@YoungNeuros).
Elsewhere: I’m an Editor-at-Large with ArtsEditor.com, where I’ve contributed original arts criticism and editorial support since 2006.
NYU: My medical alma mater NYU School of Medicine eliminated tuition for all present and future students as of 8/2018, which is amazing. Some disagree with that decision, but fortunately the NYTimes was kind enough to print my counterpoint letter in support of this incredible development at what I consider to be the most innovative and student-centric medical school in the world (as was the alumni rag, Grapevine).
