Medical School:Loma Linda University

 

Hi All, my name is Jared Amos.  I'm originally from New Hampshire, but moved to Kettering Ohio to pursue a degree in Human Biology.  I then went to Loma Linda Universy in Loma Linda, California for medical school.  I consider Chattanooga to be my second home, because it's where I met and married my wife.  I am greatly honored that I had the opportunity to move my family back here and pursue a residency in pediatrics at UTCOM. I look forward to learning to be the best pediatrician I can be.

Hi all! Jeremiah here. Here’s a little bit about me. I was born in Memphis, moved to Mississippi, back to Tennessee, then left for Georgia. I went to culinary school near Atlanta, got my undergraduate degree at Georgia State, then moseyed my way to Suwanee, GA for medical school. Interesting fact, I ended up changing to a plant-based diet the first semester of medical school (insert protein deficiency comment here). Rest assured, I’m doing alright. I have a cat, not so ironically named Cheddar, a fiancé, and recently purchased a home! I did a rotation here during my 4th year of medical school and loved it! Everyone genuinely wants to help and teaching is through inspiration, not intimidation. The city is warm and inviting, the views are awe-inspiring, and the food is scrumdiddlyumptious! If you see me around say, “Hi!”

Medical School:University of Tennessee

 

Greetings from Chattanooga, TN- one of the most fun places to go outdoors and also to learn Pediatrics! I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN where I attended Farragut High School and then went to the only college I applied to- the University of Tennessee. That was a very good decision, because I met my husband there. After college, I went to the UTHSC College of Medicine in Memphis for medical school and completed most of my clinical clerkships in Knoxville. My third-year, 8-week Pediatrics core clerkship in Chattanooga was really the best experience I had in medical school, and I could definitely see myself becoming a resident there one day. After graduation, my husband and I moved to Pittsburgh, PA (think snow) where he completed his post-doc at the University of Pittsburgh, and where our cute little son was born. There, I did volunteer activities mostly focused on teaching and tutoring, as well as an observership in Pediatrics which helped me to figure out that Pediatrics is really where my heart is. I’m really happy to pick back up the piece of my heart that I left there in Chattanooga as a third year student and to have great learning experiences while at the same time helping to provide healthcare to the people of my home state. I’m very grateful to have the chance to become a future Pediatrician, and am even more thankful that I have the opportunity to train at the UTHSC College of Medicine- Chattanooga.

I‘m from East Lansing, MI and attended Michigan State University (go green!) for undergrad. At MSU I met my fiancé, Nick Campbell, who is currently an IM resident here at Erlanger! We went to Campbell University for medical school down in North Carolina. We loved southern weather so much, we decided to stay for residency! We love to be outside- hiking, running, kayaking and can’t wait to spend more time in Chattanooga!

My name is Jacob, and I am thrilled to be training here at UTCOM! I grew up not to far from Chattanooga in the rural town of Hammondville, Alabama. From there, I went on to study Biophysics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, then Medicine at the University of Virginia. I love the rich natural beauty of the Tennessee Valley, and am happy to return to serve the communities in and around Chattanooga!  Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, eating great food, gardening, exercising, listening to podcasts, and occasionally reading or playing music.

 

 Perrin Windham, MD Perrin Windham, MD

PGY-1

Medical School:University of South Alabama

 

I am originally from Daphne, AL near Mobile and spent the first 18 years of my life there. I went to the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, AL for undergrad where I majored in Biology with minors in Spanish and Chemistry and quickly found it was my home away from home. After graduating, I was fortunate to be able to head back home to Mobile for medical school at the University of South Alabama. When faced with the possibility of moving from home again for residency, I was excited for a new adventure but hoped I could be as lucky to find a place where I felt at home like I did in Montevallo. After I interviewed at UTC and spent some time in Chattanooga, I realized this would be the best place for me and even though it was 6 hours from Daphne, I felt like this could be my new home. I'm so excited to be in Chattanooga and look forward to learning and growing as a physician!

Medical School:St. George's University, Grenada

 

I was born and raised in Sewanee, TN, about an hour away from Chattanooga. I spent my first 2 years of college there as well, and I participated in the EMS program during my time there. I became an EMT and worked both on the ambulance and in the ER at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis where I did my second half of college at University of Memphis. This set me on the track to go to medical school! I went to St. George’s University in Grenada for medical school. While there I spent any spare time SCUBA diving and hiking, and even got Rescue SCUBA certified. I was so happy to return to Chattanooga for my residency, as I’m so close to home! Here I have become an avid member of the local Crossfit community, and I try to spend as much time as I can at the gym or at the local dog parks with my Great Dane!

Medical School:  Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, New York

 

I am orginally from and grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. I attended college at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) where I majored in Biology and Psychology and minored in Spanish. After finishing my degrees I spent a year working as a patient care technician at the Medical University of South Carolina; it was there that I realized I belonged in the crazy but fun world of Pediatrics. I moved to New York in order to be part of the inagural class of a new medical school and enjoyed the change of pace and scenery, but I realized my heart was back in the Southeast. I first came to UT Chattanooga and the Children's Hospital at Erlanger as a visiting 4th year medical student and immediately fell in love with the city, the people, and most of all the residency program. After four short weeks, the residents already felt like a part of my family! As soon as I left I knew this program had a special place in my heart, and I was thrilled when I found out I had matched here for residency. This program has so much to offer with incredible faculty and mentors, amazing co-residents who truly become your closest friends and family, and learning opportunities around every corner. I love Chattanooga and all of the things it has to offer: hiking, outdoor activities, restaurants, events, music, art, and beautiful river and mountain views around every corner. I feel so lucky to be here and cannot imagine being anywhere else!

Hello, I am Rupa! I was born and raised in Tamil Nadu, India. I went to Medical School in India and moved to the US after marrying my best friend, who I have known for almost 20 years now!!! We lived in Nashville and loved visiting Chattanooga.

Medical School:  St. George's University, Grenada

 

Hi there! I am originally from a small farm town in Southern Illinois and had the opportunity to move down South for my undergraduate degree at Southeastern Louisiana University, where I was a volleyball student-athlete. After traveling 10 hours away from my humble beginnings, I decided to head even further south for my medical school career at St. George’s University, on the beautiful island of Grenada. After undergrad, my heart belonged to the South. With that said, I also needed mountains, bodies of water, and a plethora of outdoor activities- Chattanooga was a perfect match. I was additionally thrilled to come to UTCOM Chattanooga for Peds residency because of the opportunities unique to a smaller program- attendings love to teach and show a genuine interest in us as individuals and my co-residents are my family!

I was born and raised in Birmingham, AL. I went to Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where I met my husbad (who is currently a General Surgery resident at Erlaner). We got married 2 weeks before starting medical school at the Medical Universtiy of South Carolina in Charleston, SC and went through the experience together. We had our son, William, there in Charleston. We discvoered Chattanooga first during medical school and fell in love with the city. It's not only a beautiful place to live, it's a great place to raise a family and you will never get bored with all the activities available ( from hiking, paddle-boarding to restaurants and the aquarium downtown). In our spare time, we like to hike, explore the parks and walks downtown, race around the house with my son's toy firetruck, or grab a cup of coffee at Milk and Honey.

Medical School: Ross University School of Medicine, Dominica

 

I was born and raised in Columbus, GA. I graduated from Columbus State University with degree in Psychology. I first visited UTCOM-Chattanooga for a junior internship as a 4th year medical student, and I was sold. I was really impressed with how much time the attendings spent teaching, how tight-knit the residents were, and how helpful and supportive the other staff were. Now that I'm on the other side, I'm happy to say those things still hold true. Since moving here, I've loved discovering the great trails, parks, activities, music, and restaurants Chattanooga has to offer!

Medical School: American University of the Caribbean

 

I grew up in Indiana and attended undergrad at Indiana University before going to the Caribbean for medical school.  I rotated here during my fourth year and immediately knew that this would be a great place to train. I felt that the residents were enjoying their time here and that the attendings were all here to help make them better pediatricians. All impressions and expectations that I had for this program and Chattanooga have continued to be true as I have started my own training. I love the area and the many things that Chattanooga has to offer. I have been able to go hiking with my dog, visit many of the great restaurants here and slowly chip away at my list of things I want to see around Chattanooga!

Hello, everyone! I am originally from Knoxville, TN and decided to move up to the Midwest for undergrad at Butler University. I enjoyed my time in Indiana, but decided to move to Spain for a bit and work as an Au pair for two wonderful Catalonian children. I made my way back home to TN for medical school at ETSU and residency here in Chattanooga! My boyfriend and I have been together since we met in anatomy lab at ETSU, and he is currently an internal resident at Chattanooga. We, along with our dog Sherlock and cat Mycroft, throughly enjoy Chattanooga and all the outdoor activities, events, and energy it has to offer. I couldn't ask for better co-residents and faculty here at Chattanooga and I am so excited to be a part of this city that continues to grow.

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT receiving a degree in Biology from the University of Utah.  Having originally fell in love with the Southeast during a two year LDS Mission to East Tennessee, I attended Medical School at VCOM in South Carolina.  During a 4th year rotation in Chattanooga, I enjoyed working with the residents and attendings and wanted to be a part of a great group of people.  My wife and children love it here in Chattanooga and we're very grateful to be in such a beautiful part of the country.  I often say I wasn't born in the South, but got here as soon as I could and Chattanooga has only strengthened that sentiment.

Medical School: East Tennessee State University

 

I grew up outside of Nashville, TN, got my undergrad degree in biomedical engineering at UTK, and then went to medical school at ETSU in Johnson City. I have been all over Tennessee, and Chattanooga is making a strong case for favorite so far! It is surrounded by a great deal of natural beauty to explore and has many great events and amenities. I met my wife in the 5th grade, and we have been married for 2 years. We have a dog named Piper that we enjoy taking on the many walking/hiking trails and bridge around Chattanooga. I also enjoy pickup basketball at the ARC, intramural sports, spikeball, fantasy football, woodworking, magic tricks, and videogames.
