Life has been very kind to me, I was fortunate to be able to complete medical school education at Shaheed Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, (Second best Medical School in Iran) then went on to become a cardiologist, and later an interventional cardiologist at Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. I became an interventional cardiology board certified assistant professor at Rajaei Cardiovascular, Medical and Research Center, Tehran, Iran -one of the renowned and prestigious cardiac centers in the Middle East. I ended my career in Iran as a tenured interventional cardiologist to start all over again in the US for a better life. I am now a board-certified internist in the United States. I am presently in my second year of general cardiology fellowship training at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas. The next step in my training would be to pursue a career in interventional cardiology here in the US. Meanwhile, I have also published numerous academic papers, have presented at many conferences, and have co-authored book chapters and educational DCs in cardiology and interventional cardiology. I have served on different academic cardiology committees. I have actively participated in improving patient care throughout my clinical, research, and teaching career so far. Through the course of my career thus far, be it working at Rajaee, MSU, Cleveland Clinic and at the University of Arkansas, I have tried to be academically productive and have successfully published 44 paper-14 of which were published after I moved here to the United States. These publications have been well received and cited more than 320 times. I also have 6 book chapters, 6 international presentations, and 17 national conference presentations. From the very beginning, my career goal was to be a research-oriented academic interventional cardiologist, and to this day I still maintain that goal. I have also been a reviewer and an editorial board on different peer-reviewed journals.
