Medical School: University of Jordan
Residency: Saint Louis University

Why Iowa: Vascular Neurology at Iowa is widely known for their high-level training and thoughtful mentorship. Being one of the busiest cerebrovascular centers in the nation, fellowship training here was an easy choice for me given the focus and resources spend on stroke treatment, research and education. Additionally, I was attracted to the program's focus on evidence-based medicine.

Why Iowa: My comfort zone has been the Northeast of the United States for most of my life. In order to broaden my horizons and challenge myself, I wanted to leave my comfort zone to learn how Stroke care is implemented elsewhere. From my mentors and the interview trail, I learned about the opportunities that I could take by coming to the University of Iowa. The excitement of not only experiencing a wide range of pathology at a high-volume center in the Midwest, but also bringing my experiences from the busy Northeast, will become the basis for a productive and rewarding fellowship.
