Chief Medical Advisor, Sleepopolis

Quadruple-board certified in pulmonary, sleep, internal, and critical care medicine

Dr. Raj Dasgupta

Anyone who’s ever struggled with their health knows how tricky navigating the complex intersection of health and wellness can be. Dr. Raj Dasgupta, Sleepopolis’ new Chief Medical Advisor, has experienced this first hand. That’s what’s fueled his passion for teaching and helping people live their healthiest lives for the past two decades.

An active clinical researcher, Dr. Raj currently practices at the University of Southern California, where he’s been awarded the Excellence in Teaching award six years in a row. He’s also an associate professor of clinical medicine, assistant program director of the internal medicine residency program, and the associate program director of the sleep medicine fellowship at USC.

He’s passionate about mentoring young doctors and doctors in training, which is why he’s written two books series published by Elsevier titled Morning Report: Beyond the Pearls and Case Reports: Beyond the Pearls, both of which are geared toward helping medical students with board certification prep and helping them sharpen their clinical decision-making skills.

You might have also spotted Dr. Raj on TV in The Doctors and Chasing the Cure. He regularly provides expert insight for outlets like CNN, ABC News, and Inside Edition.

Now, Dr. Raj is bringing more than 20 years of expertise and passion for education to Sleepopolis, where he’ll help our readers dive into the research behind sleep and how it intersects with fitness, nutrition, mental health, and chronic conditions. He’ll support our mission to help everyone get the restorative rest they deserve.
