Medicine has always been for me a door through which I can reach out to the whole of the community on a macro-social scale, and to each and every one of my brothers and sisters in need on an individual basis. By the time I graduated from medical school in Beirut, Lebanon, I was aching to find a place where the true calling of Medicine is practiced, as an art, science, and most importantly, an expression of compassion and care. I needed to find a place for residency that would allow me to learn and practice the entire dimension of medical care right where it is supposed to be: at the heart of the community. After a small stop in Houston, Texas, where I got immerged in deep clinical and translational medical research, I found what I have always been looking for at the ETSU Family Medicine program of Kingsport. In the heart of the Appalachians, I knew I was going to be happy and fulfilled. Being close to nature with all the fun and exciting activities it offers, in a warm loving Church-centred community, is fundamental to me. The East Tennessee area has an amazing charm. The program at ETSU Family Physicians of Kingsport is simply the best place I could hope for to achieve intellectual, professional, and personal growth.
