Introduction
I received my doctorate in medicine ( MD) from Kerman University of Medical Sciences and then completed a PhD degree at the University of Western Australia in 2010 , Perth, Australia. I then came back home and started my job as academic member at Kerman University of Medical Sciences ( KMU). After obtaining associate professor degree , I successfully passed medical residency exam and started a residency in Emergency Medicine specialty in 2016. I started this residency program because I felt my PhD degree would be more effective if I can act as a clinician as well and completed my Clinical Emergency Medicine Specialty in 2019. I am also Editor-in- Chief at Journal of Health and Biomedical Informatics and also I have been a board-man of Medical Informatics field, IRAN since 2014.
