    Dr. Malini Nijagal is an obstetrician and gynecologist who provides maternity care for women. She sees patients in the clinic as well as in the hospital.

    One focus of Nijagal's research is how to deliver health care – particularly maternity care – so that patients perceive it as valuable and of high quality. She also studies how to define high-quality care during pregnancy and the postpartum period, the role of human-centered design in optimizing outcomes and experience, and how to encourage superior care by improving methods of paying for health care.

    Nijagal earned her medical degree at UCSF and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. She has a master of public health degree, with a focus on health care management, from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

    Nijagal belongs to AcademyHealth and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
