  • After graduating from medical school at a young age, he became a medical doctor in his home country, Iran, and practiced in the field of emergency medicine. While pursuing his Master’s thesis in neuroscience at McGill University, he discovered his passion for teaching. Since then, he has been working in the field of medical science education, with a focus on anatomy.
