BiographyDr. Alaka Ray spent most of her childhood in various parts of the United States as well as in Kolkata, India, before arriving in Boston to attend Harvard College. She then attended Harvard Medical School where her interests ranged from patient-doctor relationships to end-of-life care. During her Internal Medicine residency at MGH, she fell in love with her primary care clinic and chose to pursue primary care as a career. She graduated from the MGH Primary Care Program in 2010, served as the Ambulatory Medicine Chief Resident during 2010-2011, and then joined the Internal Medicine Associates as a primary care physician. She also has an administrative role in the Internal Medicine Residency program as the Associate Program Director for Ambulatory Training where her emphasis is on enhancing outpatient clinical education.
The bond between a primary care resident and a patient runs deep. For the second year in a row, the MGH honored patients for their role as exceptional teachers of internal medicine residents in the primary care clinic setting at the MGH Department of Medicine Teaching Awards Ceremony on June 5.
