Date Posted: Monday, April 01, 2024

Nasim Cheraghi, MDNasim Cheraghi, MD, Chief Resident of Neurology Residency program for the 2023-2024 school year, is from western Massachusetts, in the town of Wilbraham. Nasim has been a part of the UMass family for the past eight years beginning at UMass Amherst with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology, UMass Chan Medical School, and training as a neurology resident.  

As a Chief resident, Nasim leads the neurology residents by scheduling a well-rounded experience in neurology training, and helped to create a supportive, educational, and fun environment for residents to become well-rounded, competent, and confident neurologists. Nasim learned the importance of establishing an effective work environment includes being supportive of teammates, providing constructive criticism, reflection of her own skills and knowledge, and having a positive attitude in the work.  

Working as a Chief resident is a challenging role; however, many aspects make the job rewarding. Nasim shares, “Specifically, I enjoy being someone who others look up to and seek guidance from. It is fulfilling to reflect on my own experiences and knowledge in my residency training to help guide those following a similar path.” 

Nasim’s neurology experience has led her to pursue a fellowship in Movement Disorders and to primarily with an elderly population, to become a clinical educator in an academic setting.  

Outside of the clinical setting, Nasim enjoys hosting parties and sharing home-cooked Persian food with family, friends, and colleagues, or getting takeout and watching fantasy films and stories, such as Lord of the Rings.
