Well done to Adeel for being a runner up in the ‘Zeshan Qureshi Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Education’.
“My greatest passions lie within global health and international development”
Adeel has a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, a master’s degree in Public Health and is now pursuing a career in Medicine. As a director of the UC Haiti Initiative, he has helped develop a specialised rheumatology clinic in Haiti, and is currently working towards increasing surgical capacity and training in the same area. He has also contributed to public health work in Ghana and is currently working on technological solutions to improve the health of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
“I was driven to become a physician and a driver of change in the healthcare system to improve the quality of life for the underserved, underrepresented, and globally impoverished”
Closer to home, Adeel served as a Medical Co-Director of the Mobile Clinic Project, which provides direct medical care to a large homeless population. Through this project, Adeel was involved with both delivery of care and training other medical students to provide care to this population. This feeds on from his previous work as lead board member of the Shifa Community Clinic, which provided medical care to immigrant and refugee populations.
Impressively, Adeel is also co-founder of a health technology start up that aims to design an electronic platform for medical records in developing nations, via blockchain technology. He is currently pursuing an MBA in order to equip himself with the skills needed to expand his innovative ideas.
Finally, Adeel has somehow found the time to publish 9 research papers and also to mentor junior colleagues in getting involved with research.
We are in awe of your work, Adeel and can’t wait to see what you achieve in the future.
