Given the opportunity to be one of the first 53 students who graduated from UoS with no doubt contributed to the academic and professional success I am experiencing. Not only developed my clinical skills but also refined my scientific research comprehension, appreciation, and application. One of many outstanding professors I am very thankful for at the College of Medicine is Prof. Randa Mostafa, Head of Basic Medical Sciences Department. When I was an undergraduate and for 4 years, she went beyond of being just an academic adviser.
Today, I'm a Master's candidate at one of the top universities in North America because of her dedication even after my graduation. With the research skills gained from her rich experience and mentor-ship, I was honored to be part of her research team to participate in many research projects which furnished my clinical and scientific research skills. This has been reflected on the MSc thesis progress and recently I was invited at the University of British Columbia to share my experience and the results of our national Emirati study on the symptoms of menopause that was published recently in Climartic, a leading peer-reviewed journal worldwide.
