MD, Tehran University of Medical Sciences


Pooria attended medical school at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran. He was interested in diagnostic field; therefore, after he relocated to the United States he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the integrated diagnostics (RadPath) initiatives at UCLA. He chose to be a pathology resident at the University of Minnesota, as he found the UMN pathology residency program very strong and solid with a supportive atmosphere. He also found the Twin Cities a diverse area and great place to live. Pooria is interested in both clinical and anatomic pathology; he may consider pursuing a career in one of surgical pathology subspecialties. In his spare time, he spends time with his wife, family and friends, travels around the country, watches sports (soccer, basketball or volleyball) and tries to cook delicious Persian foods.
