Dr. Pradeep Bathina is a faculty member in the Hospital Medicine division and is currently serving on the front lines caring for COVID patients. Here, Dr. Bathina shares about his background, his love of UMMC, and a memorable hobby.

This July, the interns and new fellows in the field of medicine begin an extraordinary journey, one where they will need to adjust to their roles as primary care providers in a very uncertain environment. As the house staff class of 2020-21, they may have anxiety about caring for patients diagnosed with Covid-19, understanding that there is not yet a cure for this highly infectious virus.
