Dr. Kartik Rangaraj (Dr. Carlo Raj) currently serves at Khalifa University as the program director for pre-clerkship education, overseeing the pre-clerkship curriculum with the goal of enhanced integration, better preparedness for the clerkship years, and performance outcomes.

Dr. Carlo Raj received his M.D. from the Medical University of the Americas in 2003. He then completed his United States Medical Licensing exams, and attended Ross University School of Medicine’s Masters Education Training Program (METP). 

He was a faculty member at Ross University School of Medicine and University of Pikeville College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). Dr. Carlo Raj has extensive experience in UMSLE Prep Courses and was highly sought after by students during such assignments. At the University of Kentucky School of Medicine, as assistant professor of pathophysiology, he received the distinction of best medical educator, and was awarded the Golden Apple for two consecutive years. Concurrently, as assistant professor in Kentucky, he was appointed as Medical Director with Falcon Physician Reviews in Dallas, Texas.
