After graduation from gifted-students high school I took part in two national-wide entrance university exams and ranked 20th and 3rd among over 1,000,000 attendants, back home in Iran. I started medical school in 1991 and graduated in 1998 ranking among the top five students in the faculty. My medical degree is from Tehran University of Medical Science which is the most prestigious medical university in Iran.
After graduation, to fulfill my obligation to the government, I worked as head of Family Health program in government health network from 1998 till 2001.
After fulfillment of my obligation, I took part in a very competitive Ph.D. entrance exam for Nutritional Science which is held for medical doctors and was accepted. During my Ph.D. program I ranked number one in the faculty. I graduated from Ph.D. program in 2007. My Ph.D. is from Shahid Beheshti University which ranks number one in Nutritional Science among all universities offering this program in Iran.
Immediately after graduation, I secured employment with "Clinical Nutrition and Diet Therapy Department" of "Nutrition and Food Technology Faculty", Shahid Beheshti University as an Assistant Professor, the position I held until I immigrated to Canada. I was awarded with the "Faculty member with the most accomplishment" award in Shahid Beheshti University in 2009. I also supervised masters and Ph.D. dissertations, published many articles in scientific journals and presented articles in congresses.
Besides teaching, I worked as a nutritionist and dietary specialist in the clinic of “Nutrition and Food Technology Faculty”, in my own office and in private clinic of Professor Kimiagar (a well-known and guru of nutritional science) in Iran.
Then I finished “Holistic Nutrition program” in “Canadian School of Natural Nutrition” in Toronto and certified as a “Registered Holistic Nutritionist” in 2013. As you might be aware the new approach in medical science is addressing each person as a unique individual with unique personality, character, mentality, physical and mental situation and needs. I believe the combination of my conventional and holistic nutritional knowledge is the best way to help my clients.
