I graduated from University of Mosul, Iraq, in 1996 with first honour.

I joined Edinburgh Breast Unit for a year as a registrar, then Dundee Breast Unit for another year before passing the FRCS exam in General Surgery and Breast Surgery.

Personal Profile

I have a great passion about flying.  I hold a Private Pilot Licence, and I am a member of the Scottish Aero Club.  Flying regularly from Scone Airport, in Perthshire.  I enjoy the beautiful sceneries of Scotland.  I also design, make and fly radio controlled model airplane and helicopters.  I have an interest in saving the Honeybees, have a small apiary and I am a member of the Borders Beekeepers Association.  Woodworking has opened whole new opportunities for me to shape and create things, with pieces of furniture slowly emerging from my small workshop.
