Hello Everyone! My name is Jasmine Malek, I?ll try to make this short and sweet given our attention span as Emergency Physicians. I am originally from Los Angeles, California. I am a sister to twin brothers, one a teacher, the other an aspiring actor, both hilarious and outgoing. But then again, so is my whole family. I attended Notre Dame High School and completed my undergraduate education at UCLA where I received my B.A in psychology. I supplemented my education with a year of Breast Cancer research during my last year at UCLA. I remained in Los Angeles for medical school and attended UCLA School of Medicine. I took a special interest in international healthcare and initiated the Students for International and Tropical Medicine. I spent one month in Belize working in a rural village with a melting pot of Mayan, Creole, Garifuna, and East Indian cultures. What an experience!!! During my last year of medical school I completed a research paper that addressed the disparity in access to care for minority populations in regards to ectopic pregnancy.
One thing that I will definately remember is when I decided to overcome my fear of heights and went skydiving for the very first time! Remind me to show you the video! I completed residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center/R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. I am now currently Clinical Instructor at Washington Hospital Center/Georgetown University Hospital.
