Medical Residency Neurology, Saudi Arabian

January 9, 2013

For the past seven years, I have maintained a conceptual continuity in my medical academics and professional career, an unswerving path to a Neurology Residency assignment and ideally a subsequent Fellowship.  I am eager to increase my exposure to multiple sclerosis (MS) cases, its management, and developing sustainable, and viable healing paradigms for combating this devastating disease.  Additionally, through my participation in continuing education, research and public health activities, I will be better equipped to aid the poor, sick and needy, those who cannot afford medical services.  To be on the vanguard of investigating causation and new treatment strategies for MS would bring me the greatest personal and professional satisfaction.

 Having graduated from one of KSA’s finest medical institutions, King Saud University, I bring with me a solid foundation in medicine.  What is more, I am a demonstrator and fist-year resident in King Khalid University Hospital, one of the finest medical centers in KSA and the Middle East, and have recently completed a nephrology research project.   My academic path has been highly decorated, overcoming competition, being awarded scholarships, excellent internship rotation reports, and stellar grades.  Continuing one’s education outside the classroom is critically important.  To this end, I take advantage of educational opportunities whenever they present themselves, keeping abreast of new technologies, techniques, research findings and have conducted presentations throughout medical school as well as for neurology journal clubs, of which I am an active member.

 Coming from Canada, traveling throughout Europe, North Africa, Malaysia and being raised and educated in KSA, I have a worldview that is quite different from my academic peers.  I have developed the ability to interact effectively with others.  Moreover, since having experienced life as an immigrant, I am sensitive to the needs of minorities; combined with this is my ability to speak two languages fluently.  A future practitioner needs to be able to interact effectively with people of differing cultures.  This is critically important given the vast influx of person with varied backgrounds into America’s healthcare system.  Given my cultural competency, I feel I will be completely adept at reaching out to my diverse patients.

 Thank you for your time and consideration.
