She is now a triple board certified Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford, where she enjoys teaching and mentoring medical students and residents. Throughout her education and career, Ripal has been recognized for her excellence, including receiving a tuition merit scholarship to medical school, earning prestigious public service and international mission awards, and serving as an Expert Witness in the courtroom. Ripal runs her own research lab and in less than a decade has already accumulated over 90 citations to her name. She has founded three non-profit organizations, and often consults with media and tech companies as an industry expert.

In taking over a dozen standardized examinations in her life, Ripal often scores in the top 1% in the world.
Throughout her training to become a physician, Ripal notes that she has had outstanding educators guide her toward thinking more critically about the human body and understanding science on a higher level. From them, she has inherited a passion for instructing our next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and economists. Over the past decade, she has worked with students to help them land their dream job or get into their top choice medical school, all while learning and teaching every day. When Ripal is not in the hospital or classroom, she can be found in over 100 countries around the world, hiking the world’s highest peaks, striking yoga poses at sea level, or diving to the bottom of the oceans.
