Dr. Adhikari came to Children's Medical Center and UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2001 to complete his residency in Pediatrics. Prior to that he completed his undergraduate education at the University of Florida where he was recognized as one of four "Four Year Scholars" for the Fall graduating class of 1996. From there he went on to medical school at the University of Miami (FL). At the conclusion of his residency he was awarded the "White Hat" award, as elected by vote of his fellow 3rd year residents when asked to select the colleague they would most want as their own child's pediatrician. After his residency he stayed at UT Southwestern to complete a fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology.
Upon completion of his fellowship, he joined the faculty at UTSW, as an Associate Professor of Pediatrics. In 2008, he assumed the position of the Director of the Pediatrics Clerkship, in addition to his clinical responsibilities.
