Q & A with Dr. Elbelasi:

Home town: Mansoura, Egypt

Medical School: Mansoura University Medical School

Why did you go into medicine? I have been always fascinated by science as a child. That developed into a passion during high school so inspired by my parents and driven by my desire by my desire to help people I chose to be a doctor. It has been a truly fulfilling and intellectually stimulating journey so far.

What advice do you have for medical students going into residency?  I believe that residency is the most crucial step in our medical career. It's when we develp our clinical judgement and build a strong foundation of knowledge and skills to guide us through our career. My advice to you is to be humble, self-motivated and actively learn as much as you can, not just from your senior residents and attendings but all the members of the medical staff. You will be surprised how much they have to offer!
