Madiha is a third year Internal Medicine Chief Resident at Houston Methodist. Though she considers Queens, New York, to be her hometown, she spent a decade in Algiers and France while growing up. Before attending medical school, Madiha had a brief stint in comedy and is fluent enough to land jokes in French, Urdu, and Arabic (though with a lesser success rate). During residency, Madiha created online medical education content as an Academy Fellow for CardioNerds. She will be starting a Cardiology fellowship at Houston Methodist this upcoming academic year and hopes to pursue an academic career in cardiovascular imaging and prevention. Madiha enjoys watching and playing soccer (outdoors or online!), exploring the Houston spicy food scene, and watching true crime documentaries.
