Aruna A. Puthota,DO
Aruna is a 1st Year Resident in Family Medicine-Psychiatry at UC
Hometown: Queens, NY and Harriman, NY
Undergraduate: State University of New York at New Paltz
Major: Cell Molecular Biology with minors in Psychology and Evolutionary Studies
Medical School: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
My interests within medicine include:
-Geriatric medicine and psychiatry
-Adolescent medicine and youth health maintenance
-Global health and care for the underserved
-Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT)
When I am finished with residency I look forward to working in a rural community with the tools to be a "one-stop-shop" for my patients' medical and psychiatric needs. Once a year, I would like to travel back to my father's hometown of Kilacheri, India to run a free medical clinic.
I am very excited to be a part of the Combined Family Medicine-Psychiatry family here at University of Cincinnati/The Christ Hospital. I look forward to the integrated training I will receive and the opportunities to apply that training in any setting- both at home and across the globe. Cincinnati, itself, already has some fantastic culture in place and I am so excited to take part in its growth. Can't wait for the adventures to come!
