Alumni Stories

Dr. Omaima Ataya

From the start, Dr. Omaima Ataya knew she would work in medicine — and specifically, in pediatrics. “I never really thought about any other field,” she says. “I enjoyed a lot of my internships that were totally unrelated, like trauma surgery and dermatology, but I knew that working with kids was my calling.”
