Roni Sharon

Bachelor of Arts in Judaic Studies 2005

Neurologist and Pain Specialist,  Assistant Professor of Neurology at Tel Aviv University

Describe your job responsibilities:

Neurologist and Pain Specialist.  Assistant professor of neurology at Tel Aviv University.  I did my neurology residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York and my fellowship in Headache Medicine at Harvard University. 

I am director of a center for headache and facial pain in Tel Aviv, Israel.  Remotely, by telemedicine and robots I am also a neurologist in Green Bay Wisconsin and in New York City, seeing patients in the ER, ICU, and in the hospital remotely by robot. 


What is the most rewarding part of your work?

Improving people's quality of life and allowing them to live more full and pain free lives with the families, friends, and colleagues.


Tell us about studying at the Frankel Center:

I truly enjoyed receiving my degree at the University of Michigan Frankel Center and always remember the amazing professors I had, the friends I met when studying, and the solid background which still helps me even as a doctor.  


How did your education prepare you for your current job?

My education gave me many tools that I use in my day to day practice as a doctor/neurologist. While seemingly unrelated, a big part of practicing medicine is communication, and even history, and that was gained by my studies at the Frankel Center at the University of Michigan.


What advice would you give to students who are considering studying Judaic Studies?

While everyone who studies Judaic studies may not pursue a career exactly in that field of study, the broad and foundation knowledge gained allowed me to advance in many other fields, and I appreciate that every day.
