Dr. Suheir Assady was recently appointed as the new head of the Nephrology Department at Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, a statement by the facility said Tuesday. To date, Dr. Assady is the first Israeli Muslim woman directing a large medical department in an Israeli hospital. There are only a few women holding similar positions in the entire Middle East. Dr. Assady was born and resides in the northern city of Nazareth. In 1993, after she had completed her medical studies and internship at the Hebrew University and Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, she began her residency at Rambam in the Department of Internal Medicine C. Her fellowship at Rambam in the Nephrology Department led her to in-depth research in the field and to her PhD in Medical Sciences on the subject of characterization of differentiation pathways in human embryonic stem cells - an achievement made by only 10 percent of doctors in Israel.
