Rachel Kohn, MD, MSCE received her undergraduate degree in chemistry with a minor in linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006. She subsequently earned her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, and completed residency training in Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2014. She completed fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in 2017 and received her Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology at the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania in 2017. She is investigating the construct of "ward capacity strain," when the demand for clinical resources on general hospital wards exceeds availability, from organizational management and patient outcome perspectives. Through health services research, she hopes to improve patient outcomes, improve healthcare delivery efficiency, limit low-value care, and reduce ineffectual healthcare costs.
