I received my medical degree from the Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University in 2004.
I started my psychiatry residency training in 2008 at Ain Shams University Institute of Psychiatry. After finishing the residency training and my master’s degree in Neuropsychiatry in 2010, I was listed in the Egyptian psychiatrists specialist register. I passed MRCPsych exams and became a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2013.
I worked at Psychological medicine hospital, an independent psychiatry hospital in Cairo in the years 2010-2015. Initially as a specialist psychiatrist, and later as a consultant psychiatrist. I took up the position of Medical director of the hospital in January 2013 until leaving the hospital in December 2015. I worked in different departments in the hospital both inpatients and outpatients, treating working age patients and at times working in the addictions department.
I moved to the UK in 2016 where I started working in NTW as a specialty doctor. For the first year I worked in the adult ADHD specialist service, before moving on to Psychiatric ICU in Hopewood Park.
