Paarth Raj, DO
College: Baylor University
Medical School: UNTHSC- Texas College of Ostepathic Medicine
EM Interests: International Medicine, Disaster Medicine
Bio: I grew up in the tiny in-the-middle-of-nowhere town of Ozona, TX but got to experience every corner of the world when we broke away for far-flinging family trips around the world. Finished up college and medical school in Texas and the match brought me to Hackensack and it's been absolutely wonderful to be here so far. I still love to travel and try new things. I've been rock climbing in Thailand, ice climbing in Switzerland, scuba diving in Mexico, sky diving in the USofA, and when I'm in NYC, I don't mind picking up an extra pair of drumsticks and droppin' a beat with random street performers in the subway. Work Hard, play hard is the motto, and that's why EM is the best fit.
