I believe in providing optimal care for lymphoma patients, that is based on an integration of research-based evidence, clinical competence, and the patient values and preferences.
Following completion of medical school in Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Dr. Jasem came to the United States as a Fulbright Scholar and pursued a master’s degree in public health/epidemiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Meanwhile, he re-qualified his medical degree and conducted research, both locally and internationally, involving the health needs assessment of the underserved and refugee populations. He later pursued an internship in internal medicine at The Ohio State University, residency in internal medicine at the University of Colorado, and fellowship in hematology at Johns Hopkins University.
In his free time, Dr. Jasem enjoys hiking, soccer, listening to classic oriental music; and translating and publishing history, political, and scientific books from English to Arabic and Kurdish.
