Fiza is a Pakistani-American student aspiring to practice as an internist and cardiologist. She started pre-med at the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) in Karachi, Pakistan: she is now a final year medical student completing her clinical rotations in Chicago through the Medical University of Silesia. Fiza is the recipient of the Robert Gillespie Reid Memorial Scholarship, the University of Toronto Scholars Program; she has also worked as Education Lead for the Science Innovation Union’s Katowice Chapter, an Oxford University based non-profit. Having always immersed herself in the healthcare fields, she now strives to increase her volunteerism and advocacy through AMSA. She strives to enter the public health and medical education sector one day, and, in particular, is keen on understanding the gaps between US healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.
Her years as an AMSA member, Fiza has served as Tutoring Head and Chapter President at her university and subsequently as International Membership Director with AMSA National for two years. Now as International Trustee, she looks forward to building the bridge between future international doctors practicing in the US and advocacy in medicine.
She believes her time with AMSA National will fuel her passion for education and improving the quality of life of the underserved.
