I am serving as reviewer for two journals (The green journal & the international journal in Obstetrics and gynecology BJOG). So far, I have reviewed 17 manuscripts. I am planning to review more as well in the future and to have my own research papers. In my MPH, my dissertation was systematic review about the evidence of causal link between Zika virus and congenital anomalies.
Obstetrics & Gynecology:
I had good experience in obstetrics. I did hundreds of normal and operative vaginal deliveries, I did hundreds of primary and repeat C-sections whether urgent or elective, term or preterm, under different indications as abnormal fetal presentation (breech, transverse) and placenta previa. I assisted in many cases of cesarean hysterectomy for placenta percreta, being diagnosed before the procedure. Our delivery suite was an intermediate care unit for cases of preterm labor, severe preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome and acute fatty liver of pregnancy. In the obstetric ward, I used to take care of post C-section patients, pyelonephritis in pregnancy & diabetes in pregnancy. Pregnant patients diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis were managed in the intensive care units under the supervision of the obstetrics team. I used to run the antenatal care visits and the high risk pregnancy clinics. I did hundreds of follow-up ultrasounds and morpho-scans.
I managed wide range of cases who presented as threatened, missed and incomplete abortion. I did hundreds of D&Cs. I used to manage cases of molar pregnancy.
In the gynecology, I used to run the gynecology clinics, I did many procedures as hysterectomies whether abdominal or vaginal, myomectomies, anterior and posterior colporrhaphy. I assisted in many de-bulking procedures and radical hysterectomies.
I have worked with doctors without borders in a busy maternity at Shatila Camp. I was responsible for running the antenatal visits for about 140 patients daily with two midwives. I used to manage the high risk pregnant patients (refugees with vague complicated medical histories: obesity, recurrent preterm deliveries, gestational HTN, Gestational DM, DVTs in pregnancy…). I was responsible for supervising the delivery suite (no blood bank, no anesthesia or operating room), in case of emergency, I used to stabilize the cases to be transferred to tertiary hospital in Beirut).
I used to work from January 2011 till Sep 2015 as general practitioner in many clinics in different areas in Lebanon. I used to manage complaints in infections (respiratory, urinary and gastrointestinal), diabetes management, hypertension management, running essential screening tests and to counsel patients about their health and to refer them to specialized doctors when necessary. Although this job was part-time job, but clinics were busy clinics situated among low income communities so people cannot pay too much for their health and at the same time, the life style and associated conditions make those people more prone to health complications and diseases simply due to poor housing or unhealthy work conditions. In any evening shift, I was simply expected to manage at least 20 -30 patients with different complaints.
Qualifications that I get in my MPH program
I get great knowledge in medical statistics and research, interpreting data and writing different study designs. I learnt how to use Stata to analyze the association between different variables (linear and logistic regression: univariate and multivariate) and how to study different statistical distributions. My dissertation is a systematic review to update the evidence about ZIKV teratogenicity.
In my master program, I get good knowledge in medical research, data analysis, running different study designs and doing coherent literature review with critical appraisal to different study designs using different checklists (STORBE, CASP, SURE).
I get great knowledge in basic epidemiology, applied epidemiology, health management, health policy, health economics, health protection, environmental health, global health, health improvement and leadership in health. I am well trained to use many tools as doing health need assessment, health impact assessment, evaluation of health systems using Donabedian and Maxwell templates, running PDSA cycles and continuous evaluation to ensure health improvement. Also, I have well trained to do retrospective and prospective analysis of health policies. I have studied thoroughly modules in global health and leadership in health in which change is a key to improve health status in low and middle income countries through cooperation between local health ministries and different NGOs.
