The Author

My name is Roheet Kakaday (Row-heat Kaw-kuh-day). 

I like to classify myself as a technophile, amateur futurist, and an interdisciplinarian. First and foremost, though, I am a student; specifically, a medical student working towards his MD.

My days are usually filled with studying, thought experiments, and bouts of entrepreneurial inspiration. I thrive on brainstorming creative ways of making processes better - in every sense of the word. Lean On - an agency that connects med students to premeds - is my first venture.

I attended the University of California, San Diego where I earned a degree in bioengineering with area studies in political science and history. Now, I hone my skills at the Oregon Health & Sciences University School of Medicine.

Among other things, I have volunteered in terrorist-controlled regions of rural India, helped spearhead an award winning health literacy program for the underserved, dual-wielded micropipettes in the name of science, and supported health care teams in critical care settings. I am known to occasionally kick a soccer ball around and I cook a mean chipotle turkey burger. If you want to learn a little more about the beginnings of my journey, have a listen.

My writing has been featured on sites like KevinMD, Wing of Zock, the official OHSU Student Blog, and more. 

I ideate on The Biopsy, tweet @TheBiopsy, and correspond with rk@thebiopsy.com. Thanks for reading!

Be well,


The Blog

Creation. Curation. Contemplation.

The Biopsy is my platform to learn from and contribute to the dynamic world of modern medicine. Here I create new ideas, curate others I find noteworthy, and contemplate the process of becoming a physician in the digital age of medicine. I do not write about specific health issues and every story is penned to comply with HIPAA directives.

The opinions expressed in this blog are solely those of the author and no one else. The author is not a licensed physician, thus any and all information pertaining to one’s health should be discussed with an actual physician before implementation.
