Dr. Manshadi in Red Robe

Dr. Ramin Manshadi

Dr. Ramin Manshadi is a cardiologist in Stockton, as well as a clinical professor at U.C. Davis Medical Center. But he's not just any cardiologist; he was named America's Top Cardiologist by the Consumers Research Council of America 2006-2007. On hand to help him celebrate during the award ceremony last year were CRC coaches Travis Parker, Ron Preble, Cesar Plasencia and PE Dean Liz Belyea. He specializes in sports medicine and credits his love of sports to the CRC soccer program and coach Travis Parker. With plans of becoming the next great soccer star, little did he know that his time spent at CRC would take the slogan “Stay Close, Go Far” to new heights. As a CRC student scholar and athlete, Manshadi applied the skills he developed on the playing field to his classroom experiences, experiences which helped to take him to the “next level” of his academic career.

He states, “I learned how to be a team player and to make sacrifices for the bigger objective.” Recalling that his classes at Cosumnes were every bit as rigorous as classes he would later take at 4-year colleges, Dr. Manshadi felt well prepared for the challenge of medical school and beyond. His success in the challenging field of cardiology is a testament to his academic preparation and dedication.

Among the other awards Manshadi is recognized for, is the Future Leader Award from the American College of Cardiology, America’s Top Physician from the Consumers Research Council of America in 2003 and Cardiologist of the Year from Strathmore’s WHO’S WHO, 2006-2007.

When asked what the most important lesson he learned while at CRC, Manshadi replied

“To set a goal for yourself and to always strive towards that goal. No matter what the obstacles…always keep moving forward.”
