Samuel J. Pera, M.D.

I am very excited to be joining the Department of Surgery as an Assistant Professor. I grew up in Chicago, IL. I completed my undergrad in Urbana-Champaign at the University of Illinois and medical school at Rush University in Chicago. I've been fortunate to have exceptional teachers and mentors, and I hope to pay that forward to the next generation of physicians.
