Ritu Bhatnagar joined UHS in 2022 as the Associate Director of Psychiatry. Bhatnagar focuses on addiction and general psychiatry, integrative medicine, and psychobiotics. Bhatnagar chose to work in college health because she enjoys seeing the changes that can happen when people are curious about themselves.

“I appreciate the opportunity to guide students at a critical time in their lives when they are learning about how they can change the world.”

In her free time, Bhatnagar enjoys hiking, travel, mindfulness, and reading a book in front of the fireplace on cold winter days. Bhatnagar appreciates the power of slowing down and listening,  which she carries into her work with patients.
