This month, Asad Zaman, M.D., joined the expert medical team at National University's Whole Health Center. In his new role, Dr. Zaman will provide patient care to the public and will have the added responsibility of teaching clinic interns while allowing them to observe his patient care interactions.
"In this new era of practicing medicine, we will have interns focus on preventive care as well as disease management," said Dr. Zaman.
Dr. Zaman is board-certified in internal medicine, and has directed his own practice, Zmedi, since 1999. He graduated from Dhaka Medical College and completed his residency at Weiss Memorial University of Chicago.
With the addition of Dr. Zaman, the Whole Health Center will be expanding its healthcare offerings to include a full menu of healthcare services including allopathic services, pharmaceutical prescriptions, injections and major wound repairs.
His expertise also means more educational opportunities for clinic interns. Following National University's focus on integrative medicine, Dr. Zaman will have the opportunity to refer patients to the clinic's chiropractic, naturopathic and acupuncture/oriental medicine services. Via direct observation of patient care and interrogative teaching sessions, NUHS interns will have the chance to see a larger variety of disease types and disease complexities. Dr. Zaman, who has experience building a new practice from the ground up, will also teach interns the business-side of medicine.
"This is an exciting opportunity," said Theodore Johnson, Jr., DC, DABCI, NUHS dean of clinics. "Dr. Zaman can teach interns many valuable skills, particularly how to efficiently evaluate and manage patients, without sacrificing healthcare quality."
Initially, Dr. Zaman will be the sole medical practitioner at the Whole Health Center. As the practice grows, the assistance of other providers from his practice will be added, including two board-certified medical physicians and a certified nurse practitioner.
"Our group is committed to high quality evidence based medicine," Dr. Zaman said. "We will provide high quality integrative healthcare to our patients."
