Dr. Ross is the Director of the Virginia Institute of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). He completed medical school and residency in psychiatry at VCU. After that, he finished a fellowship in neuropsychiatry (with a focus on schizophrenia research) at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, University of Maryland, where he stayed on the faculty for several years. In 1997, he returned to VCU where he joined the full-time faculty. In 2001, he founded the Virginia Institute of Neuropsychiatry (VIN).
He is board-certified in 3 areas: (1) General Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology; (2) Neuropsychiatry by the United Council on Neurologic Subspecialties; and (3) Brain Injury Medicine by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He is a nationally recognized clinician, educator, researcher and forensic expert.
He and his colleagues at VIN pioneered the application of NeuroGage® in patients with traumatic brain injury. He invented a method for estimating brain volume the moment before injury (U.S. patent pending serial number 14/464,657) in order to improve the understanding of the effects of brain injury on brain volume.
