Nathan Lambert-Cheatham

Michigan State University Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellow




Indianapolis, Indiana


Why did you choose to become a part of MSU Neurology?

As a medical student I rotated with MSU’s neuro-ophthalmology program.  The program trully impressed me and provided such great learning opportunities.  Now I have chosen to return as a fellow because I am confident that this program will provide me with great training and experience for my future career.


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

I enjoy using science to help people.  If I was not a medical doctor, I would probably be an engineer who designed the tools for doctors to use.  



Extracurricular Activities:  

Running, just about anything outdoors, and visiting friends & family
