Essam Ibraheem Elknawy
Visiting Instructor, Pediatrics - Gastroenterology
BioI am currently serving as a research fellow in pediatric gastroenterology department at Stanford University Medical Centre. I am an ECFMG Certified Physician. Over the past year, I have effectively immersed myself in the U.S. healthcare system. I am actively engaging in outpatient and inpatient services, as well as the operating room. Concurrently, I am involved in various IBD-related research projects. With six months of U.S. clinical experience (USCE) in pediatrics and three years of clinical practice in Egypt, I bring a well-rounded perspective. I graduated with honors from Mansoura University School of Medicine in 2020. My academic excellence is complemented by a robust track record in clinical research, evident through ongoing papers, posters, and oral presentations. My primary role centered on the execution of clinical research, with some laboratory work complementing it. I am currently the primary author for a study titled "Clinical Outcomes and Safety of Infliximab and Vedolizumab as Initial Biological Therapy in Pediatric Patients with Mild to Moderate IBD." Additionally, I contributed as the third author to another research project titled "Patient-Derived Organoids Illuminate a Mitochondrial Bioenergetic Inefficiency Associated with Decoupling in the Colon Epithelia of Pediatric Patients with Ulcerative Colitis." Proficiency in English, both spoken and written, is a point of pride for me. Beyond medicine, I find fulfilment in volunteering within underserved and disadvantaged communities. Athletics play a significant role in my life, and I am passionate about sports such as soccer, basketball, and fitness training. An Egyptian physician raised in the United Arab Emirates, I am dedicated to pursuing a career as a pediatric gastroenterologist in the United States.
