I have graduated form the medical school (Dhaka Medical College, Bangladesh) in 1993. Afterwards, I finished my internship in medicine there and worked as a medical officer in Bangladesh till 1996. I moved to USA in 1997 and went to the School of Public health, completing my MPH in 1999 and worked for a year as an epidemiologist. I finished my residency in Internal Medicine in 2003 and worked as an Internist at Fairmont Medical Center, an outreach of Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. I joined the UMC in 2008 since I had great interest in teaching and research. Since then, I have published 1 original research article and several review articles as a primary author and a senior author in peer-reviewed journals. Several of my abstracts have been accepted in national and international meetings for presentation. I have also written a chapter for an Endocrine textbook that has been published in 2012.I have been involved in teaching of medical students, residents and fellows (Sleep medicine) at UMC and enjoyed it very much. I have always encouraged them to be involved in research and has mentored them to present their abstracts in several regional and national scientific conferences and to publish case reports in peer reviewed journals. I have initiated a pre-operative assessment clinic at UMC and have been providing service to the patients by clearing them for surgery at a short notice. This service has been very much appreciated by all of our surgeons. I have finished my Board Certification in Sleep Medicine in 2011 and is now supervising the fellows in sleep medicine fellowship training. I have also initiated services for patient with insomnia to treat them with non-pharmacological intervention (CBT) who have previously failed other treatments.I am also involved with research in sleep medicine in collaboration with VA medical Center as a co-investigator in 2 separate IRB approved projects. Both of these studies have been finished and abstracts of these studies have been presented in a national conference. A full paper have been already published in a leading national Sleep Journal, and another manuscript is now being prepared to be submitted for publication soon.
