The University of Arizona Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery
My name is Muhammad Khurrum. Currently, I am working as a research fellow at The University of Arizona Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery. I graduated from Jinnah Medical and Dental College in Karachi, Pakistan. After finishing medical school, I joined Aga Khan University Hospital and completed an internship. The hospital and the institution provided me with opportunities and expertise that helped build my clinical outlook. I am always fascinated by the research and wanted to explore science. In order to equip myself with the right tools to be a physician-scientist, I took a position as a research fellow at The University of Arizona. Over the past ten months at this institution, I have been humbled by the opportunities I have been provided. I have published more than ten articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented at multiple national conferences. I also wrote several abstracts and was able to secure the podium presentation in multiple prestigious scientific meetings such as; The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress, Pediatric Trauma Society, the Military Health System Research Symposium and Academic Surgical Congress. My current research focus is on quality improvement initiatives, traumatic brain injuries, at-risk populations in trauma and emergency surgery, and trauma systems improvements. Due to the unique blend of my scientific training, clinical environment, choice of collaborators and mentors, I am currently working on eight different research projects encompassing a variety of issues within the trauma, general emergency surgery, and critical care specialties.
