      Dr. Rahman went to medical school at Northwestern University, and received his Masters in Public Health there as well. Dr. Rahman has a strong interest in reducing health disparities both domestically and abroad. He has worked in under-served communities in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Jamaica, Haiti, and most recently in South Africa, where he spent over a year in Durban working at a public hospital serving indigent patients suffering from HIV, TB, and a host of chronic conditions.

      Dr. Rahman is interested in educating American medical students and residents to work effectively and intelligently in international settings, and to form long-term relationships with educational institutions and communities abroad. He is also interested in helping to build the capacity of health systems in developing countries to improve the management of chronic diseases.
