Khushboo Verma outdoors by a lakeHello! My name is Khushboo, and I am from the bustling city of New Delhi. As I grew up, watching my mother, a surgeon, and father, a pediatrician who led large-scale public health polio elimination campaigns, was always inspirational. Dinner table conversations about patient care and disease prevention offered meaningful insights and conveyed the sense of fulfillment derived from the profession. Hence, when choosing a career path, my resolve to make a difference steered me toward medical school.

My interest in neurology flourished during medical school as I began to appreciate its complexity and unique mathematical precision. I am thrilled to be joining the team at UAMS, where I look forward to commencing my residency training.

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially when we are out and about, traveling and exploring new places.
