- Professional profile:
After receiving my medical degree from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 1984, I completed an internship at the University Hospitals, Egypt. I furthered my training in rheumatology at the Centre for Rheumatic Diseases, Royal Infirmary, Glasgow University, where I carried out my MD thesis. I obtained my Diploma in Internal Medicine, masters degree and MD in Rheumatology.
I have authored several research studies in the field of inflammatory arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout and osteoporosis, which were published in peer reviewed journals. I also published more than 100 abstracts in international rheumatology conferences. I have more than 860 independent citations and an H-index of 16.
I have been a strong advocate of early treatment of inflammatory arthritis adopting the most recent “Treat to Target approach”.
For my contribution in the field of rheumatology, I have been invited as a speaker in international conferences, and symposiums.
I am a consultant rheumatologist practicing at Medway Foundation Trust as well as Darent Valley Hospital.
