There is a lot that goes into being a medical profession. It requires sacrifice and hard work to be in a position where you can impact so many lives. Dr. Saad Saad understands this all too well. His positions have required a great deal of sacrifice. He speaks on this in a recent interview with ideamensch.com.
Dr. Saad Saad knew that a career in medicine would be his best option. He did not enjoy the hot summers in Kuwait and being an engineer for the construction industry was not at the top of his list for potential careers. He decided to instead become a surgeon.
Dr. Saad Saad has been all over the world. He has left his mark in various communities. Growing up in Kuwait he knew that he wanted to do more for the world. His parents had already immigrated from Palestine to give him a better life.
He knew that eventually, he would have to build on that momentum for himself. He attended Cairo University and then went on to an internship in the UK. In Charleston, South Carolina he learned a lot about what patients need from their provider. He learned that he wanted to be a surgeon that treated everyone the same regardless of their financial resources, religious background, race, or gender.
When it comes to the medical community, there is a lot to get excited about. There is always some type of development or change in the way that things are being done that helps increase the quality of life. Dr. Saad Saad has found a lot of excitement in the field of genetics.
He believes that genetics is going to be so important for future work. In fact, he has a lot of faith in its ability to provide treatment for cancer and chronic diseases in the future. When looking at the development of this part of the field Dr. Saad Saad understands what a practitioner needs to do to bring ideas to life. His main advice for these practitioners is to do research. Research is the most important part of this process.
Organization is a very big part of Dr. Saad Saad’s life. He believes that it is one of the reasons why he is not prone to any type of procrastination. Much of the work that he does would require an individual that is very regimented and experienced. He has to maintain a sense of focus.
He believes that these habits are invaluable to his overall success. Meditation is also a very big part of his day-to-day activity. He believes that if he could go back and talk to his younger self he would tell them to maintain their focus and believe in their ability to reach their goals.
For him, he has reached those goals. He went from the child of a poor Palestinian family to the personal physician of the Saudi Arabian royal family. Now a celebrated inventor, Dr. Saad Saad has had a very interesting life.
