Dipesh Bista, MD

Treasurer & Fundraising Chair

I was born in Kathmandu, Nepal and went to medical school at Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University in India and then did residency in Internal Medicine at UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh, USA. I have worked as a hospitalist for over 10 years. During this time, I have had opportunities to serve as Medical Director for a Hospital Medicine group as well as Chief of Department of Medicine. Currently, I serve as Associate Program Director of Internal Medicine Residency Program at BSW All Saints Medical Center, Fort Worth and hold appointment as Assistant Professor at Texas Christian University Burnett School of Medicine.

My professional interests lie in Medical Education and community service. I have been fortunate to be part of Texas Nepalese Medical Association as well as Himalaya Health Clinic since their inception. Currently I serve as Treasurer and member of Executive committee for both these non-profit charity based organization.

Outside of medicine, I love to travel. My wife Nivedita and I are blessed with a 9-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son. Spending time with them is my favorite part of the day.
