Senior Ultrasonographer (Band 8)
Having graduated in 1998 from Damascus university, I earned a degree in medical sciences. I subsequently pursed my career in the United Kingdom and in 2004 was awarded my MSc. in Medical Ultrasound and the Diploma of Medical Ultrasound from Imperial College University London.
In 2008, when I was pregnant with my younger son, I decided to expand my knowledge in medical ultrasound by enrolling in a PgC course and obtained my qualification with a merit from King’s College, London.
I am a member of the British Medical Ultrasound Society, hold a basic accreditation from the Society of Vascular Technology of Great Britain and Ireland and NT accreditation from the Fetal Medicine Foundation.
I have over 11 years experience in both NHS and private hospitals and have been appointed as a Senior clinical ultrasound specialist at Kingston hospital NHS Trust in 2012 (Band 8 Sonographer).
As well as enjoying every aspect of my professional life, I also enjoy my volunteer work for a charity that supports orphans in my home country of Iraq.
