Short Bio:

I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. I did my undergraduate studies there and obtained my MD degree in 1996. In 1999, I was admitted in Clinical Hematology program at Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg, France and graduated in 2004. Before immigrating to Canada in 2006, I had been working for almost 2 years as a clinician in Reunion Island, one of the French overseas territories. In Canada, I did my second residency in Hematological Pathology at the University of Ottawa and obtained my specialty certification in 2014. I pursued the laboratory medicine path by enrolling in another year of fellowship in Calgary Lab Services. The current position of hematopathologist in Providence Health Care was offered to me and I started to work at St. Paul’s on June 1, 2015. I am really delighted and honored to be a part of Providence Laboratory Group.
