Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland - Bahrain

Brief Bio

My education ranges from Texas to the Middle East. I graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland – Bahrain with an Irish Medical Degree and completed my internship in King Hamad University Hospital Bahrain and rotated through various Pediatric specialties including General pediatrics, Metabolic Diseases, Pediatric Intensive Care, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Rehabilitation Services. I pursued my career as a pediatrician, and later on became a pediatric clinical tutor at my alma mater teaching neonatal medicine to undergraduate medical students, spending more time in our NICU, I became greatly interested in this branch of pediatric medicine. My research interests mainly include perinatal medicine, critical care medicine, and developmental medicine. If I had to choose one of the research works that I take great pride in, it would be the use of subliginal Atropine to pediatric sialorrhea or drooling: on obstacle frequently overlooked in the care of special needs children. I also like to think outside the box and enjoy networking both at a college and hospital level and enjoy public speaking. Outside working hours, I like to enjoy the great outdoors and trying almost every cuisine out there. Whether in its practice or in its teaching, Child health requires one to take on a different perspective and at times, demands lateral thinking. Having said that, the Translational Research Program is my ideal path to the researcher and physician I aspire to be.
