Diligence leads you to success, but the continuity of success is achieving the equation of success, work, and your intelligence.

Dr Eman Hajji, Consultant Psychiatrist

To all women: frontliners, mothers, teachers, housewives – wishing you all the best for your great participation in the community. Happy Women’s Day to you all!

Dr. Lamees Bastawisy, Dentist

Life as a dentist is sometimes hard. But I still love what I do and I love seeing the smile I put on the patient at the end.

You too should love, respect, appreciate what you chose to become as a medical student, nurse, doctor, or any staff in the healthcare industry.

Dr Safa Ali, Dentist

I have always felt that we, as humans, have an inborn desire to want to help others.

While it’s natural to feel like you’re under an immense amount of pressure to perform as a new doctor, it simply has to be done. Fortunately, today asking for advice from those who have gone before—as well as having the social platforms sharing some great doctors achievements, dairies, and useful tips to the world, can make the process a little easier.

As a woman, when you are passionate about an idea, or you are determined to have your voice heard, you will be called emotional, or overreactive. It’s OK. Be yourself and follow your dream.

My golden success advice to my determined ladies is, “Give yourself time to learn but with determination” A lot of freshly young doctors can be slighly nervous because they aren’t familiar with certain procedures or diagnosis. However, this is completely normal. The idea of learning, participating and taking internships is for you to get acquainted with a variety of methods and actually practice what you have learned. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Being assertive is highly valued.

“Stay focused and stay determined. Don’t look to anyone else to be your determination — have self-determination. It will take you very far.”
– Justice Smith

I look up to all of the women who came before me, especially those who pursued dentistry  when female physicians were still a rarity. I hope that you are all inspired to realize your full potential and best of luck to all the determined ladies! Dream of success but also work for it!

Dr. Karima Alashiri, General Physician

To be a doctor, you have to be patient and diligent. The medical profession is one that requires sacrifice and humanity. Happy Women’s Day to you all!


Dr Basma Al Sayed, Surgeon

I remember when I chose to specialize in general surgery after completing my studies of medicine for many years. At that time everyone of my family and friends was pushing me to move away from this difficult field full of hardship and physical & psychological effort. This specialty has always been the preserve of males for long periods. The prevailing belief that women, by virtue of their weak body composition and the physiological changes that they undergo, do not strengthen this specialization. But the reality that I and my female colleagues, the surgeries in our dear hospitals, have proven to everyone the opposite on the ground. Because women can reach the highest ranks in various specialties and even Man competition and superiority over him.
My advice to future physicians is to put your dream before your eyes and make every effort and the hand of God will always help you.
Happy International Women’s Day to you!

Dr. Talbi Safa
Women must use the same ingredients for success as men: hard work, perseverance, and dedication. But most women must also possess fortitude to overcome sexism and earn recognitions. It’s only when you connect with other women that you get to support & elevate your work and your life.



I am a writer, covering the sprawling expanse of healthcare, among many other things that I love writing on.
