I work in the cardiovascular intensive care unit and manage advanced cardiovascular disorders. Apart from my clinical practice, I have 7 years of experience teaching basic and clinical pharmacology to international medical students. I have experience teaching basic and systemic pathology and clinical skills: BLS & PHTLS.

I passed the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 and the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK). I believe in the importance of continuing medical education and have international certificates and training from the European Resuscitation Council in BLS, the American Heart Association in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and the American College of Surgeons in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS).
