Sanjay Arora, MD
, is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. He completed his clinical training at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2005 and joined the faculty at USC where he currently serves as the Associate Research Director in Emergency Medicine. His research area of interest is utilizing emerging technology to improve the quality and efficacy of care in patients needing acute care, and to bridge the gap between an emergency department visit and a stable outpatient medical home for low-income, inner city patients with chronic disease. As chronic disease and its impact on the emergency department is a large topic, he has focused his efforts on diabetes and HIV as model diseases on which to test interventions. His work has been funded by the CAL/ACEP Emergency Medicine Research and Education Foundation (EMREF), the McKesson Foundation, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI), Gilead Sciences, the Office of AIDS Programs and Prevention, and the California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP). In addition to conducting research, he is a prominent educator in his field and received the speaker of the year award at both of the largest national conferences in emergency medicine (the American College of Emergency Physicians and the Essentials of Emergency Medicine) in 2011.
