Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellows

Ryan Paranal, MD

Dr Ryan ParanalYear of Completion: 2023
Residency: Cohen Children’s Medical Center, Pediatrics
Medical School: Drexel University College of Medicine

I was born and raised in NJ before attending Providence College in Rhode Island for undergrad. After graduation, I obtained my medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. From here, I went on to complete my residency in pediatrics at Cohen Children's Medical Center in NY, and am now a pediatric emergency medicine fellow at Baystate. I have a wide variety of clinical interests, including medical education, toxicology, trauma, and ultrasound; however, I'm looking forward to exploring the different opportunities PEM has to offer. In my free time, I like working out, spending time outdoors, and playing basketball and volleyball.

Baystate stood out to me because I was looking for a place that complimented my experience as a resident. This program produces well-rounded clinicians, has a variety of pathology, and cares for a large volume of sick patients requiring acute care. It prioritizes trainee education, and there is a supportive environment amongst faculty and staff that naturally fosters a collaborative atmosphere.

Year of Completion: 2024
Medical School: Frank H. Netter, MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University, North Haven, CT
Residency: Penn State University/Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA

A native of New England, I completed my undergraduate and medical school training at Quinnipiac University. I ventured to the sweetest place on earth (Penn State Children’s Hospital, Hershey, PA) to complete my pediatric residency and am looking forward to being back in New England for fellowship!

I chose Baystate as I was extremely impressed by the faculty’s dedication and support for their fellows. Baystate will provide me with the opportunity to train in a state-of-the art facility and work with a variety of learners. My interests include toxicology, medical education, and ultrasound.

In my spare time I enjoy bike riding, knitting, listening to audio books, and long walks in nature. I am looking forward to new adventures in the outdoors of Western Massachusetts!
