I was born and raised in a small town, south of Tehran, Iran. After high school, I moved to Vienna, Austria for higher education and completed medical school in 1997. After completing 18 months of residency in Austria, I moved to the US. I first lived in Oklahoma for my licensing and then I moved to Pittsburgh for my residency in Internal Medicine.
I moved to Albuquerque in 2004 for my fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of New Mexico.
In 2007 I moved to Anchorage to work in my field and in 2009, I was assigned to become the director of the eICU in the start up of our eICU project.
My passion, in addition to providing bedside critical care, is to make sure we deliver appropriate 21st Century Care effectively and consistently to each patient, every day.
