Adeel Saleemi

Sparrow Hospital and MSU Interventional Neurology Fellow



I earned my medical degree from Allama Iqbal Medical College in Lahora, Pakistan.  I completed an internship in Preliminary Internal Medicine at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown, PA, followed by a Neurology Residency training program at the Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.  I subsequently joined Michigan State University to pursue fellowship training in Vascular Neurology and Interventional Neuroradiology.

Why did you choose to become part of Michigan State University Neurology?

MSU Neurology offers everything I am seeking in my career as a neurologist.

If you were not a doctor, what would you have chosen as your career?

I would have probably become a commercial airline pilot or joined the air force.
