Murrad Abdelkarim, M.D., was born and raised in the Midwest. Through education, advocacy, and evidence-based medicine, Dr. Abdelkarim strives to provide the highest quality care to his patients. His passion for cardiovascular medicine is derived from the personal impact it has had on his family, and the healthcare consequences of this disease on society at large.

In addition to international healthcare, disease prevention, medical education and clinical research have been essential elements in his medical career.
