- Clinical Resident in General Surgery
Dr Mudathir Ibrahim comes from Nigeria and completed his medical education at Southeast University Medical College in China, graduating with distinction in Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). After graduation, he completed a two-year clinical research fellowship in cardiac surgery under the mentorship of Drs Eugene Blackstone and Michael Tong at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, USA, where he gained an in-depth experience in research methodology and published several papers. He went on to complete the United States Medical Licensing examination and is currently a general surgery resident at Maimonides Medical Centre in New York, USA. After completing two years of training, he obtained sponsorship from his institution to complete a research fellowship in Evidence-based Medicine and Surgery at Oxford University.
His interest lies in gaining experience in evidence-based medicine, particularly its integration into the practice of surgery to improve the safety and outcome of surgical patients. To this end, he works under the mentorship of Professor Peter McCulloch within The IDEAL Collaboration group (an international initiative dedicated to the systematic evaluation of surgical innovations and improvement of the quality of surgical research). He also collaborates with the Quality, Reliability, Safety and Teamwork Unit (QRSTU) to gain experience in the exploration and evaluation of human factors interventions on the safety of health care providers and patients.
