About Me

Rachel Solnick, MD, MSc, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Population Health Science and Policy, is a physician-researcher focused on health equity, women’s health and public health interventions in the emergency department.

As part of her work, Dr. Solnick partners with the Emergency Medicine Informatics, Education and Operations teams. One aim of this cooperative partnership is to improve sexual and reproductive healthcare in the emergency department by leveraging innovative and evidence-based public health solutions. These projects have involved implementation science methodology-guided approaches on delivering comprehensive care for patients with sexually transmitted infections (STI); providing expedited partner therapy (EPT) for sexual partners of patients with an STI; preventing HIV through screening; examining mechanisms to institute ED-initiated pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP); and mentoring residents to develop simulation modules and procedural skill building on the clinical management of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).

Dr. Solnick holds a masters degree in Social Epidemiology from the University College of London and another masters degree in Health Care Research from the University of Michigan, where she also completed a research fellowship with the National Clinical Scholars Program.  In 2023, Dr. Solnick received the Health Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Grant from the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) to support her project “Neighborhood Social Vulnerability and Access to Expedited Partner Therapy Prescriptions: a Secret Shopper Audit Survey.”

Dr. Solnick has also been awarded research grants from and held leadership roles in the American Medical Association (AMA) Women Physicians Section, the Academy for Women in Academic Emergency Medicine (AWAEM), the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the Emergency Medicine Residents Association (EMRA).  She further has contributed to national maternal healthcare workgroups with the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health.
