About

Dr. Maliha Khan (she/her/hers) is the LGBTQ+ Healthcare Fellow for 2022-2023. Her clinical interests include LGBTQ+ primary care, HIV care, adolescent medicine, gender affirming care, and behavioral health. She grew up in Vienna, Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. She received her Bachelor’s of Science from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. After completing undergraduate studies, she worked at the Food and Drug Administration as a research fellow, then went on to complete her medical degree at Texas Tech University. She completed her residency training in family medicine at Kaiser Permanente in Woodland Hills, CA.

Dr. Khan’s interest in LGBTQ+ healthcare began as she heard about other queer individuals and their difficult experiences in the healthcare system. She also noticed that many coworkers needed more tools to holistically care for LGBTQ patients. This inspired her to start educating herself about LGBTQ+ topics. While in medical school, she prepared a ground rounds style lecture on transgender/gender diverse care as a 4th year medical student for residents. During residency, she prepared a multi-part lecture series for her co-residents on various LGBTQ+ topics as part of a longitudinal research study on increasing resident comfort with these subjects.

To gain further experience in the field, she rotated through various clinical sites working with a wide variety of LGBTQ+ patients as both a medical student and resident. She has come to recognize that each patient has a unique story, complete with new perspectives, life experiences, and trauma; and that it is a true privilege to be a part of their support system and journey.

Outside of work, Dr. Khan enjoys reading novels, practicing yoga, watching musical theater, exploring Los Angeles, and spending time with friends and her cat Shady
