Ajay Giri, MDNampa Program
Class of 2024
University of Utah School of Medicine
Ajay grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, and went to college at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. After completing his degree, he returned to Salt Lake, gaining experience in clinical research and working on studies such as the SPRINT trial, which has impacted how we think about blood pressure management in adults. He is passionate about supporting the health of the community and obtained a masters degree in public health from the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City.
He then completed medical school at the same institution. During that time he met and married Steph, an endlessly charming woman, and became stepdad to Clara and Marie, two wonderful and very funny girls. He loves to cook, take long wandering walks and laid-back vacations with his wife and will often be found singing and goofing around with his children. He will also occasionally be seen buying useless things for his family’s two cats. He is excited to get to know the vibrant community within the greater Treasure Valley and continue his medical career as a family medicine physician.
