Kulkarni graduated with a major in Asian & Middle Eastern studies and a minor in ethics & biomedicine. Since graduating, Kulkarni has served as a Global Health Fellow at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, where she has led the medical school's innovative Global Health Curriculum, an elective program featuring coursework, experiential learning, and a mentored pathway for students engaging with resource-poor communities, internationally and domestically. In that role, she helped develop and execute global health curricula and training opportunities with the goal of preparing trainees to be better learners and more valuable contributors in low-resource settings. This past year, Kulkarni worked in Guyana on two clinical research studies through Johns Hopkins University that explore aspects of the Jhpiego Guyana Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Project, a joint initiative with the Guyanese Ministry of Health that offers women free visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) testing, an alternative cervical cancer screening method. Kulkarni plans to attend medical school in the future, and hopes to integrate her interests in global health education and training as a practicing physician.
While at Dartmouth, Kulkarni served as an OPAL Pan Asian Council intern, a section editor for The Dartmouth newspaper, philanthropy chair of Delta Delta Delta sorority, and was a member of the Inter-Community Council, the Student Budget Advisory Committee, and Casque and Gauntlet senior society. She also participated in some global health initiatives while at Dartmouth, including the Tucker Foundation's Alternative Spring Break programs and the Nicaragua CCESP, and worked in a New Delhi slum on HIV/AIDS education as a Dickey Center international intern.
