Akram E. Dera, MD, recently joined Hattiesburg Clinic as a hospitalist at Hospital Care Service.

Through his work with Hospital Care Service, Dera provides evidence-based treatment for patients who are hospitalized.

Dera received his medical degree from the University of Tripoli Faculty of Medicine in Tripoli, Libya. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Baltimore, Md.

Following his residency, Dera remained at Greater Baltimore as fourth year chief resident. He also has experience in medical research, with a Master of Science in clinical research from Rush University in Chicago, Ill.

Dera said he enjoys having the ability to help people in such a direct way.

“To every patient, every time, I will provide the care that I would want for my own loved one,” he said.

Dera joins Hospital Care Service’s team of more than 30 physicians and mid-level providers treating patients at Forrest General Hospital.
