Program Director's Background
Dr. Arabian grew up in Los Angeles. He completed his undergraduate degree from USC and subsequently pursued his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Western University of Health Sciences. He was part of the first internal medicine residency class at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. He then graduated from Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) fellowship from the Ohio Health System. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, PCCM, and Neurocritical Care.

Philosophy & Approach
My vision for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is to train residents to be compassionate, devoted, and well-versed internists by balancing academic goals with clinical diversity within a supportive and shared learning environment. Moreover, our program is passionate about giving residents as much autonomy as possible. We believe that when residents take ownership of their patients from an early point in residency, they become invested in continuously improving their knowledge and clinical skills. Additionally, by providing a setting rich in resources and faculty support, we encourage residents to cultivate their curiosity and contribute to the medical research community. Ultimately, our goal as a training program is to challenge residents so that they are comfortable practicing in any setting of their choice upon graduation.
