Mohamud A. Verjee, BSc(Hons), MBChB, MBA(LS), DRCOG, CCFP, FCFP - Moving to Oxford after qualifying at the University of Dundee, Dr Verjee spent 16 years practicing general medicine but wanted more. He then moved to Eastern Canada and two years there propelled his career at the University of Calgary from 1996. In 2007, an opportunity to lead family medicine as the inaugural primary care director at Weill Cornell’s branch campus in Doha, Qatar, revealed more academic horizons. The rest, in his words, is history.
