About Doctor Raman

Dr. Raman Mehrzad, MD, is a medical doctor, scientist, author, professional speaker and businessman presently living in beautiful northeastern state of Connecticut. “Dr. Raman”, as he is typically called, was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved to Sweden at the age of two. After primary and high school, he pursued a Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Science, Mathematics and Programming. Upon graduation, he was accepted to medical school at the University of Gothenburg, Sahlgrenska Academy, and was honored to be one of the youngest students ever accepted to this prestigious university program. In parallel with his medical studies, Dr. Raman joined a research team at the institution for Biomedicine at age 19, and pursued four years of laboratory research on the subject of viral replication and infection in humans. After graduating from medical school in 2012, he was one of a few select doctors to be accepted to a position in the highly-competitive medical residency training system here in the United States. As a result, Dr. Raman was simultaneously offered research positions at Massachusetts General Hospital, along with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, both of which are official hospitals of the Harvard Medical School. He recently graduated in June 2015 from his Internal Medicine residency program at a Tufts University School of Medicine -affiliated hospital and is currently practicing specialty medicine at Yale New Haven Hospital.
