Welcome new faculty members to the Department of Medicine!
Mohamed Hassanein, MD
Hometown: Alexandria, Egypt
Residency: Michigan State University
Fellowship: Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH
Tell us about yourself: I was born in Kuwait, and grew up in Alexandria, Egypt. After graduating from the Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University, I came to the US for research at Northwestern University followed by residency and fellowship. I decided to pursue nephrology after a wise man once told me “Nephrology is not a branch of internal medicine, internal medicine is a branch of nephrology!”. I have a special interest in glomerular diseases, vascular access, and kidney transplantation. In my free time, I enjoy family time with my wife and 2 kids.
What are you most looking forward to working at UMMC? A lot!! I am looking forward to learning and growing professionally while simultaneously educating medical students, residents and fellows, advancing the science of nephrology through research and contributing to the growth of UMMC. I also look forward to making new friends and enjoying the sunny weather!
Tulip Jhaveri, MBBS
Hometown: Mumbai, India
Residency: Internal Medicine, Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Burlington, MA
Fellowships: Infectious Diseases, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA and Medical Microbiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
Division: Infectious Diseases
Tell us about yourself: I was born and raised in Mumbai, India where I studied medicine at Seth G.S. Medical College and K.E.M. Hospital. After graduating from medical school, I moved to the US and spent six wonderful years of post-graduate training in Boston. Encountering a large volume of infections during my training in Mumbai and Boston inspired me to choose infectious diseases as a career, since it is specialized yet such a diverse and cerebral field. Given growing threats of antibiotic resistance, I have developed a special interest in antimicrobial and diagnostic stewardship. In addition, I am passionate about global health and have been pursuing implementation science research on barriers to patient engagement in tuberculosis care cascade in India and validation of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests in Peru. When not at work, I like to unwind myself by playing cricket and racket sports, going to parks and hiking with my wife, socializing with friends, and trying to not think too much about my patients.
What are you most looking forward to working at UMMC? As a clinician educator at a large academic center, I look forward to teaching and learning while working together with our excellent colleagues and giving high-quality care to our patients. I hope to imbibe the fine qualities of my mentors and inspire more trainees to join this rewarding field of infectious diseases. I envision joining the growing antimicrobial stewardship program and working closely with the microbiology lab on quality improvement initiatives.
