Clinical interest: Orthopedic Surgery

“The Syrian medical system has been modelled on the UK system. They learn all their medicine in Arabic, unlike all of the other Arab speaking nations, which learn it in English.

It also made it very difficult for me, because the Arabic I know does not contain many medical vocabularies, so sign language was resorted to on many occasions!”
