My fellowship at the Reading Shoulder Unit in the UK is a unique opportunity. The fellowship program is structured in a way that  we are not bogged down with the day-to-day running of the service and are free to operate and do clinical research, which I am highly interested in.  During my fellowship, I developed unique arthroscopic and open surgical skills, which has given me the skills and ability to treat simple and complex problems from the fingers to the shoulders. I can now serve my community with the utmost, up to date knowledge and skills as working with well known qualified surgeons has given me the opportunity to become a better surgeon, educator, and academic.

I completed my Pediatrics Residency in Palestine. During my residency I became more interested in Pediatrics Endocrinology, so I applied and received funding from Juzoor after being accepted at McMaster University in Canada to complete a two year clinical fellowship in Pediatrics Endocrinology. McMaster is known for its unique program and variety of clinics that treat children with general endocrine disorders, dyslipidemia and obesity, bone disorders, type 2 diabetes, alongside with type 1 diabetes clinic which has over 600 patients. I gained excellent experience in advanced technologies used in treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus.  This has improved my medical expertise on many levels as I am not only completing my training at a large tertiary hospital, but also learning from pioneer staff pediatric endocrinologists. During my first year of fellowship, I presented a scientific poster at a national Canadian conference and I published a case report and started my own research project. I was appointed as a Chief Fellow which helped me become more involved in clinical education and act as a teaching resource for juniors. I was a part of a positive uplifting work environment. I focused more on how to advocate for my patients and how to always take the next step to help them. Overall, this has been a fulfilling experience that I look forward to bringing back to my beloved country Palestine.

“I was selected between several candidates to do my clinical fellowship training in one of the highest competitive programs in surgery in Canada. I did my fellowship in thoracic surgery at the London Health Science Center in Canada. This is a very rare specialty in Palestine. The number of thoracic Surgeons in West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem is limited and almost none of them perform minimal invasive lung or esophageal surgeries. The only challenge I faced was a financial challenge. So, I contacted Juzoor and informed them of my situation and if they had any suggestions to help me. Juzoor immediately replied and were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. I’m so proud that we have such an organization here in Palestine. Hopefully, one day, I will be able to give back by actively participating in their activities when I come back from Canada.”
