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.Poornachand Veerapaneni, M.D., near the Statue of Liberty

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.
