Abdul Waheed, M.B., B.S. was born and raised in a rural area of Lahore, a district on the Eastern border of Pakistan, where he attended Government College University Lahore. Because of the rich literary traditions of the college, he developed an interest in fictional literature and poetry. Dr. Waheed, still pursues this interest today as he writes poetry in Urdu language and is a published author.
Dr. Waheed attended Aga Khan University in Karachi where the exposure to community health sciences led him to work as a general medicine officer in Lahore after graduating.
With an interest in research, he has more than fifteen peer reviewed indexed publications, with the hope of publishing more as he continues to grow in the field of family medicine.
Dr. Waheed believes the diversity of thought, people, teaching and learning at Penn State Hershey Medical center enable him to be a well rounded family physician.
