After fleeing from religious persecution in Pakistan with her parents, new Logan Hospital doctor Aisha Masood said she now hopes to help other refugees receive the health care not available people in her homeland.
The Logan resident said from a young age her parents taught her the core values of hard work and persistence and taking opportunities provided.
“There were so many opportunities in Australia and I worked hard and found my strengths did lie in science,” she said.
She said her main motivation in pursuing a career in medicine came after a visit to Pakistan where she saw people dying from basic medical problems like appendicitis because of a lack of medical services.
“I am very happy to be able to work at Logan Hospital and I would like to focus on refugee health and the health of minority groups including Indigenous health and possibly specialise in cardiology.”
