I am originally a Canterbury based renal physician, after having practised medicine for more than 20 years; I joined the pharmaceutical industry and then worked for Pfizer for 15 years. I am semi-retired now, doing part-time consulting work for the pharmaceutical industry.
I have been a trustee for almost a year, but have been aware of the great job that FQMS has been doing to support medical education in Palestine for many years. I am also now the Vice Chairman of the charity.
I have helped mentor Palestinian trainees in the UK and Jordan and have been impressed by the high calibre of the Palestinian physicians. I am hopeful that with your support FQMS will continue to expand its support base, so that we can ensure that medical education in Palestine is able to flourish. I look forward to working with you and other trustees to achieve this goal.
