Derek Crouthers, MD

Dr. Crouthers' Bio

Hometown: Johnson City, TN
Undergraduate: ETSU
Interests & Tidbits: I enjoy outdoorsy things, traveling, anything computer-related, and sports. Being in Memphis the last 4 years, I've been to lots of Grizz games & love the local music, festivals, events and breweries.
Why Saint Francis FMR: I rotated at St. Francis during my 3rd and 4th years of medical school at UTHSC. I felt like all the staff, attendings, and residents were supportive, helpful, and that it would be a great learning environment. I'm also very interested in Sports Medicine, so Campbell Clinic's connection was impactful, too.

Dr. Jaberi's Bio

Hometown: Fresno, CA
Undergraduate: University of California, San Diego
Marital Status: Married
Interests & Tidbits: I enjoy being active in the community; I especially enjoy working with the junior youth to help them raise their capacity to take charge of their own spiritual, social, and intellectual development.
Why Saint Francis FMR: I chose Saint Francis because it's an unopposed University affiliated program. I wanted to be part of a program that will provide me with a well-rounded experience in all aspects of family medicine. I also had a great time visiting the program. The residents seemed to like the program, and I also felt very comfortable being around them. Being in supportive environment was very important to me, and I felt like I can get that here.
