A doctor of osteopathic medicine candidate at the Western University of Health Sciences, Ruhi Patil builds upon an academic career that includes a master of science in global medicine/management from the University of Southern California and a bachelor of science in biology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). While enrolled as UCLA, Ruhi Patil received a Chancellor’s Service Award.

Bestowed on an annual basis, the UCLA Chancellor’s Service Award honors graduating UCLA undergraduates who have made outstanding contributions to the University and/or the greater Los Angeles area through conscientious community service. This award is open to any final-year undergraduate student with a strong and sustained record of volunteerism and/or leadership.

Chosen by a panel of UCLA staff members, Chancellor’s Service Award winners wear a special blue and gold fourragere during the UCLA commencement ceremony. Their names also appear in a special section of the official commencement program, and they receive other exclusive opportunities that vary from year to year.
