Rania Sakr, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor
Division of Family Medicine

Division Head, Family Medicine
Clerkship Director in Primary Care

As a Family Medicine specialist, I was one of the individuals who established both the Travel Clinic and the Youth Clinic at the Medical Center of Saint Joseph University. This effort helped raise consciousness and improve the knowledge and state of health in our community — through prevention, travel vaccination, and attention to adolescent health.

Subsequently I established the Family Medicine division at the LAU Medical Center — Rizk Hospital. This has served a vital role at our hospital in raising awareness about the importance of family practice to our society.
