Salwa ChawichMD,FAAPAttending Physician
American Board certified Pediatrician with vast well rounded experience in Emergency Medicine.
Through intensive training in a busy city hospital affiliated with Cornell University, to taking the role of primary attending at a “Trauma one, tertiary care hospital” of Temple University, moving later to a John Hopkins’ affiliated hospital in the gulf, I gained the expertise to managing critically ill and affected children.
As a scrupulous physician with rich background of Academia, Certified by Fellowship program in “Academic general Pediatrics”; I was very involved in the resident and medical students’ education throughout my career, for which I was awarded “certificates of appreciation” few times.
I would always be sure to promote abidance to Evidence Base Medicine via courses and bedside clinical teaching.
It is an honor and vision for me to be an adjunct Faculty at the reputable Universities affiliated to my work place, back in USA with Temple University and most recently with UAEU-FMHS.
Quality of patient care and patient safety are top priorities for me, that’s what drove me to be part of the quality team, representing my division in every hospital I worked at.
Lastly, as I believe, Medicine is a dynamic progressive art, and to keep abreast, I continue my membership in the major academic associations of Pediatric and ED Medicine.
