Tehreem

Tehreem is currently completing her Emergency Medicine Residency at Advocate Christ Medical Center, a busy Level 1 Trauma Center serving Chicago’s South Side. She is also the National Chair-Elect of the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association’s Social Emergency Medicine Committee and a Section Editor of the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine.

As a National Institutes of Health Fellow, she developed clinical-community partnerships for information exchange at Yale-New Haven Hospital and identified geographical predictors of social needs to inform targeted community-based interventions for complex and vulnerable patient populations. Prior to that, at the Maryland Department of Health and Hygiene, she worked with Dr. Howard Haft, Deputy Secretary for Public Health Services to establish a statewide advanced directives registry through collaboration with stakeholders such as the Office of Attorney General.

Tehreem graduated from Yale School of Medicine where she led interdisciplinary curricular reform and coalition-building to promote inclusive and equitable health care. For this work, she was presented the prestigious Seton Elm-Ivy Award by New Haven Mayor Toni Harp and Yale University President Peter Salovey, featured in the 2018 Exhibition of 100 Years of Women at Yale School of Medicine, and inspired the creation of the annual The Robert Rock and Tehreem Rehman Activism Award at Yale School of Medicine.

She received her MPH with a concentration in Epidemiological & Biostatistical Methods from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as a fully-funded Sommer Scholar and completed her undergraduate studies at Columbia University as a John Jay and Gates Millenium Scholar. Tehreem is invested in the integration of population health frameworks in healthcare operations and passionate about developing clinical-community partnerships to promote value-based care in healthcare delivery and management.
