    Dr. Luthra profile photo

    “The UC Davis neurology residency program provided me with a comprehensive training in neurology, the chance to explore various subspecialities in outpatient setting, and most of all, amazing mentorship from senior residents and faculty.  I always felt that the department genuinely cared about my professional development and took a vested interest in my success. After graduating residency, I went on to pursue a movement disorders fellowship at UCSF and have stayed on as faculty engaged in patient care and clinical trials research at UCSF and San Francisco VA Medical Center. I am forever grateful to UC Davis for preparing me so well for this role!”
