Tulika Singh, MD, MS, AAHIVS

Associate-Chief Medical Officer

Tulika is a Board Certified HIV Specialist and an Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine Physician who has been working in HIV care since 2009. Prior to joining DAP, she worked as a Primary Care and Infectious Disease Specialist at North Ottawa Community Hospital in Grand Haven, Michigan, and as an HIV Specialist at Mercy Health Partners of Muskegon, Michigan.

She derives great joy from building relationships with her clients and from collaborating with all members of DAP’s transdisciplinary team to offer caring, comprehensive, and compassionate care. She enjoys the opportunity to see her clinical ideas become reality and she revels in working with her patients who teach her something new everyday.

Tulika is passionate about HIV/AIDS care, PrEP, and HCV co-infection. She takes great pride in her work and focuses her efforts on excellent patient care, has a passion for research, and thrives on being an educator of patients, staff, and clinicians.

She received her Medical Degree from Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, India and then served her Internal Medicine Residency and Chief Residency at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Ohio. Tulika also completed an Infectious Disease Fellowship at The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. In addition, she also holds a M.S in Health Care Administration from the University of New Haven.

During her time living in Michigan, Tulika worked pro bono at a charity medical clinic for uninsured patients. She is excited to be a part of the HIV Primary Care Guidance panel for the HIV Medicine Association where she is working with others to contribute to and update the organization’s HIV Primary Care Guidance.

“I am known to be upfront and thorough in my clinical care with good time management so my patients don’t have to wait during a visit. I like to use humor and affection to put them at ease during visits as well.
