Feras Jeradeh-Boursoulian, MD
I was born and raised in Damascus, Syria, the oldest capital in the world where I also attended the medical school. After graduation, I decided to come to the United States to pursue, my ultimate passion, a post graduate training in the field of neurology. In order to further enhance my knowledge in basic neuroscience, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the department of neurobiology and developmental sciences at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. My research focused on understanding the modulation of synaptic transmission, investigating the effect of ethanol intoxication on the olfactory bulb circuit through extracellular and patch – clamp recording.
I started neurology residency at the University of Arkansas for medical sciences in 2010 and will graduate in June 2014. I have found all subspecialties of neurology equally appealing and after graduation, plan to work as a general neurologist at the north Mississippi medical center neurology group in Tupelo, MS.
On a more personal note, I am married to Shereen Kazma who is the love of my life and we are expecting a baby girl next April. I have several hobbies including classical guitar playing, soccer, horse riding, taekwondo, soccer, swimming and billiard playing.
