HEAL for Muslims

HEAL for Muslims began in May 2017 as an initiative by then PGY-2 Psychiatry resident Samaiya Mushtaq, M.D., to connect Muslim housestaff across residencies and fellowships in different departments. The objectives for HEAL for Muslims include increasing engagement and support for Muslim trainees. HEAL for Muslims hosts an annual iftar and quarterly meetings on issues relevant to the group such as campus prayer space and patients’ attitudes toward providers.

Trainees as well as faculty from all backgrounds are welcome!

HEAL for Muslims will relaunch, virtually, February 8, 2022 (6-7pm)! Check your inbox for details on how to join. You may also email HEAL or Maryyam Sehgal if you have questions.
