HELI 2011 alumnus Aasim I. Padela, MD, MSc, FACEP, is the new professor and vice chair of research and scholarship in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin as of September 2020!
Dr. Padela’s multidisciplinary research clears new fields that unite ethics, medicine and religious studies. In his own words, “I use Muslim Americans and Islam as a model to study how religious identity impacts health behaviors and healthcare experiences, as well as the professional identities of doctors and their practice. I also explore the bioethical guidance Islam offers to patients, providers, policymakers and religious leaders.”
