Poornachand Veerapaneni, M.D.

I grew up in Vijayawada, a city in India which is well known for its location on the banks of Krishna River and reputed schools and colleges. With a strong passion for medicine, I was successful in achieving admission into Siddhartha Medical School.

Medical school gave me an opportunity to observe and work with various successful physicians which inspired me to pursue higher education. I later came to USA and completed Masters in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) due to special interest in research.

I have a strong passion to pursue residency in Neurology from my medical school. I am honored to have this opportunity to become part of UAMS Neurology residency program. It’s a great place to work which I came to know through my wife and I am confident that I will become a good team member. Little rock is a beautiful place with lots of outdoor activities. I love the fact that I can stay with my family as I pursue my training.

I enjoy playing with my kids, watching sports, travelling and cooking.
