• It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do. I have seen it first hand in Karbala during the Arbaeen camps and my son was fortunate to participate in two of the missions. I have made a donation today.

  • I cannot express the profound impact IMI has had on my life: from the incredible opportunity to serve on the Arbaeen Medical Mission to the insightful career guidance and special programs for Young Leaders that I’ve benefitted from!

  • If InshAllah, I secure a residency in the upcoming match, I will owe the organizers and the speakers at the seminar more than they will take credit for.

  • IMI has been my outlet for philanthropic work since before I entered into high school. It is through IMI that I see my efforts, here in New Jersey, manifest into something much greater around the world. IMI has helped me realize that ambition alone is not enough to change the world; in order to achieve the changes we wish to see in this world we require ambition, vision, and most importantly execution. That is why I have joined IMI, so that my ambition and vision can meet their execution.

Clinical Attachment in Urology

IMI Ireland organized a clinical attachment for Dr Muthanna Abid, an Iraqi native from Najaf. Dr Abid works at the University of Kufa as a full time Urologist. He came to Galway, Ireland for a 21 day clinical attachment, commencing from the 20th January to 17th February, 2011.

Dr Syed Qasim Jaffry pieced together a rigorous working day programme for each day Dr Abid remained in Galway. Dr Abid rotated out of Galway’s three main hospitals, in each of these he got to see a number of Urological cases, these consisted of

  • Brachytherapy seed implantation for prostate cancer
  • External beam radiation therapy for prostate cancer
  • Laparoscopic radical nephrectomies for both renal cell cancer and non functioning kidneys
  • Open & laparoscopic radical prostatectomies
  • Open radical cystectomies
  • PCNL (percutaneous nephro lithotomy)
  • Interventional and diagnostic radiology including PCN & renal embolisation

On a daily basis, Dr Abid attended ward rounds with Dr Jaffry and his team, observing the patients care along with their treatment and further management. He participated in attending the weekly Urological multi disciplinary team meetings gaining a hands on oversight into Urological cases and their consensual outcomes. He liaised with the various urological teams & the general working practices of Urological care in the West. He also observed & discussed in detail the administrative & Nursing care.
