Professional Experience and Accomplishments

I am originally from Karachi, Pakistan, where I studied medicine. I completed my Family Medicine residency at Florida Hospital Orlando. I became one of the first few Family Medicine trained hospitalists at a tertiary care hospital system in Central Florida, where I served as the vice chair of the Family Medicine department for several years.

With the increasing globalization of our world, the impact of travel and climate change on global health, and the growing awareness of health disparities worldwide, global health has become a critical area of my focus for medical and health practice. To further my understanding of this field, I completed a Global Health Fellowship at the University of San Francisco, during which I had the privilege of living and teaching in Malawi and Kenya.

Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) has become an affordable bedside modality over the last decade. It has proven an invaluable tool in the care of hospitalized patients. I am a POCUS instructor who has taught in the US and abroad. I was involved in a project to teach POCUS to all Family medicine residents in Kenya in 2017. Additionally, I have been involved in several publications on using POCUS in clinical medicine and education. I am dedicated to incorporating POCUS, telemedicine, and other cost-effective patient-centered technologies into patient care.

The sharing of academic experience and networking are integral to Family Medicine practice. I have presented at the AAFP Global Health Summit regularly and offer residents and medical students the opportunity to do research and present their findings and posters at this conference. In 2019, I gave a podium presentation at the American Academy of Family Medicine FMX conference on the topic “Zika, the Forgotten Pandemic”. I have conducted numerous POCUS workshops at the yearly UCF Global Health Conference and have been involved with round table discussions on new technologies during these events.

In addition, I have several written publications and published medical illustrations. My publications cover a diverse range of topics, including chapters on the correlation between fast food consumption and weight gain, and the emerging threat of Ebola. My research and publications allow me to explore thought-provoking health topics from unique perspectives.

I have an executive MBA from the Johnson School of Business and an MS in healthcare Leadership from the Weill Cornell School of medicine. Skills used from these programs have helped fortify my leadership skills and have provided a broader skillset that I bring to the table when supporting medical students, residents, and fellows as they become future healthcare leaders.
