I studied Critical Care and Anesthesiology in France. Subsequently I worked in France for ten years, then moved to Lebanon where I have practiced as a Critical Care physician. I have significant experience with wounded soldiers, mainly acquired during the 2007 Nahr el Bared battle.

In parallel, I was elected President of the Lebanese Critical Care Society. During my mandate, I organized seminars as well as national and regional congresses. I also organized the first ultrasound seminars dedicated to Reanimation.

At present, I am pursuing work in the area of parenteral nutrition at LAU Medical Center - Rizk Hospital. In addition, I have been involved in national campaigning with the National Organization for Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplant (NOD-lb) in Lebanon.

I am also highly interested in the issue of ethics which is reflected in my past participation in medical ethics committees within our hospital.

I am currently conducting awareness campaigns on Basic Live Support (BLS) directed at the general public.
