Adam Ketron, MD, PhD

Adam Ketron received his BS in Biochemistry at Northern Kentucky University and his PhD in Chemical and Physical Biology at Vanderbilt University, where his dissertation research focused on structure-activity relationships in poisons of human topoisomerase II. Prior to medical school, he taught high school chemistry and physics and served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Cumberland University. During medical school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, he volunteered with the Memphis Crisis Center suicide lifeline. His interests include Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, first-break psychosis, mood disorders, and serving rural or under-resourced populations. In his free time, Adam enjoys hiking, exploring nature, and listening to podcasts and music (especially twentieth century classical), and he is eagerly waiting for choral singing to make a post-pandemic comeback.
