“Dermatology is a dynamic specialty that improves rapidly in terms of innovations and advanced technology. There is a variety of training options and a wider margin of flexibility of practice in the future. It can be extremely rewarding, especially when it has a positive impact on the patient’s life quality after years of suffering or when it saves life of those patients who have life threatening conditions. In many circumstances, the proper treatment has a high rate of success and patients can see immediate results or changes, so the objective of the ultimate satisfaction of the patients would be more achievable”

“My interest in the field of dermatology began at a young age, however, my subsequent experiences within the profession have helped me realize, unequivocally, that dermatological skin diseases exhibit various presentations that require the utilization of profound visual and tactile skills for the accurate recognition and differentiation of numerous skin configurations, morphologies, and distributions. My academic interests include General Dermatology, Mohs and Dermatologic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology. In the prospective future, I aim to combine my clinical practice in the field of dermatology with research, in conjunction with working alongside a Hospital/University that services a large and diverse population. I would also like to utilize all the experiences and tools I gain throughout my career towards establishing an innovative research program within the Middle East, that studies and analyses all the diverse skin conditions, concentrating primarily on Melanocytic Nevi, Skin cancers and Hair pathologies.”
