Doctor Speaker Series: Dr. Syed Haider

Dr. Syed Haider will be speaking about his journey to Medical School and beyond. Syed Haider is a fourth-year medical student at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai who will be starting General Surgery residency at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Syed was born and raised in Pakistan and immigrated to the United States in 2007. He studied biology at City College of New York where he was a Colin Powell Health Scholar, CCNY-Memorial Sloan Kettering Research Fellow, and CUNY Jonas Salk Scholar. As a medical student at ISMMS, he was selected as Mount Sinai-GLG Global Health Scholar and where he co-founded Mount Sinai Human Rights Student Leadership Program that provides educational, research, and advocacy opportunities for students interested in working with refugees, asylum seekers and survivors of torture. He organized a school-wide conference on Islamophobia and Racism in the Healthcare System and has shared his work on Human Rights at several national meetings, including at the Consortium of Universities for Global Health. Syed has held several leadership roles at ISMMS. He served as the President of Student Council and was a member of the Student Council Board of Trustees Committee, LCME Accreditation Task Force Committee, and Muslim Students Association at ISMMS. In addition, he has conducted extensive research on sports-related traumatic brain injuries, bibliometrics, and surgical disparities in healthcare. He has additionally co-founded Global Surgery Student Alliance Group at Mount Sinai and is involved in a new curriculum for Global Surgery at ISMMS medical students. Syed intends to combine his clinical interest in General Surgery with his interests in human rights education and refugee healthcare. Outside of academics, Syed has a strong interest in soccer, photo-journalism and traveling.
