Dr. Rasheed M. Fakhri

Rasheed is an orthopaedic surgeon and has worked at the Amman hospital for 10 years. He organises all the medical and surgical activities at the hospital, oversees the quality of care and ensures that the necessary resources are available in time.

I manage the admission criteria and support the medical and paramedical teams in their daily activities. I work on protocols and assess new surgical technologies which we could use in the future (artificial skin, replacement joints etc.). Lastly, I oversee scientific publications and university partnerships and networks.
