Academic Activities and Responsibilities

I was born in Lebanon...I grew up in Beirut known as the worst place to be for many Hollywood war movie fans and the pearl of the Middle East for those who have seen it...When I finished my medical school at the American University of Beirut, I had the chance to meet a very prominent lebanese emergency medicine physician who convinced me to switch plans from following a surgical specialty into training in Emergency medicine. I saw an opportunity to make a change and here I am. I found in the University of Maryland, the mission of its Emergency Medicine Department a new ground to nurture my ambition and become one day a leader in this field. Things could not be better in this program that made me feel at home again?
