“Why do diseases occur? What a brain-teaser! What a ‘Nobel’ science that works behind the curtain to support all clinical sciences in their mission!” says Fatma, discussing how pathology’s “brain-challenging” nature sparked her interest in lab medicine. She is Assistant Professor of Pathology at Cairo’s Helwan University; faculty in the Basic Medical Sciences Department, King Salman International University, Egypt; and Associate Fellow of the Association for Medical Education in Europe, UK. Fatma believes designing undergraduate pathology curricula is challenging but, by uncovering the causes of student dissatisfaction, is committed to improving learning experiences with innovative, but attainable, ideas.
