Having graduated in 1999 from Babil University, Iraq, I earned my MBChB degree. I was then awarded a fellowship to study radiology as part of the Iraqi Board training program. Further to this, I performed my foundation training in Babylon University Teaching Hospital between 1999 and 2001. I subsequently started my radiology training in 2001.
In 2005, I left Iraq to come to the United Kingdom. I passed my language and medical exams in 2006 and received my GMC registration. After starting my honorary registrar job in St Mary’s Hospital in London, I joined the radiology training program in 2008. I was granted a fellowship in MRI in 2009.
Having started as a Locum Consultant in the Royal Free Hospital in June 2010, I quickly followed on to my permanent position as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist in Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals.
I am a member of the British and European Societies of Skeletal Radiology.
Having over 5 years’ experience in both NHS and private hospitals, I have performed more than 10,000 image-guided musculoskeletal injections.
Currently, I am leading the MRI unit in St Helier Hospital. I present the radiology aspect in the Rheumatology and Trauma and Orthopaedic meetings and supervise and teach Junior Specialist Registrars and Radiographers during their reporting sessions.
I am involved in the teaching and research process and have published a few papers and case reports. Currently, I am a sub-investigator in 3 randomised clinical trials with the South West Elective Orthopaedic centre.
