Jacob Ferris, MD
Medical School: University of Texas San Antonio
Jacob started residency at the University of Colorado Neurology residency, where he has been an exemplary resident. We’re happy that Jacob then had this epiphany: “My clinical experiences as a resident have solidified my understanding that psychiatry is the best field for me, both for my values and the skills I bring to patient care.” Jacob majored in Biology, Art, and Art History at Rice University and completed medical school at University of Texas at San Antonio. Jacob has a deep commitment to environment. While at UT, he contributed to environmental sustainability projects, including expansion of recycling program, water bottle filling stations, and coordination of campus Earth Day fair. During his research career at the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease in San Francisco, he served on the Green Committee and hosted events to promote environmental issues.
