Introducing our new Vice Chairman: Nihad Tamimi

Read a message from Dr Nihad Tamimi, our new Vice Chairman:

“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. Now I am semi-retired, 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. This year I became the Vice Chairman of the charity.

Previously, I 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. Then 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.”
