Ramani bio picHi, I am Praveen Kumar Ramani, coming from a small town called Arakkonam in south India. I am currently in my third year of Pediatric Neurology training. After finishing my basic training at a renowned medical center, I decided to come to the US for my further training in Pediatrics and Neurology. I have always had a great passion for pediatrics which has grown enormously during my internship, especially my love for being around children. My beautiful nephews and niece need special mention here! 

After coming to the US, I had a chance to work with several great pediatric neurologists in different centers which inspired me to make a career in child Neurology. Kids are so resilient but at the same time also seem so vulnerable that is why I started my career in this field. UAMS and Arkansas Children’s Hospital is undoubtedly a great place to get trained. I am so excited to join my adult Neuro year with the great team here at UAMS.
