Associate Professor, Basic Sciences
Dr. Khan was fortunate enough to be part of an educated and well-placed physician's family and, in 1978, graduated in Medicine and Surgery from one of the best medical schools in his native Pakistan-The Dow Medical College in Karachi (now Dow University of Health Sciences).
In 1981, after his residency in medicine and surgery, he completed training at Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Institute, and received a post-graduate diploma in pulmonary diseases and tuberculosis from the University of Karachi. In 1983, he earned membership in the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Chest Medicine. Dr. Khan has served as a pulmonologist in various university hospitals and has taught graduate and post-graduate medical students for the last 25 years. In 2000, Dr. Khan relocated to the United States where, in 2005, he completed master certification in medical terminology. He is a member of the American Association of Anatomists.
Dr. Khan has been an adjunct professor at H. Truman College, College of DuPage, and National Naprapathic College in Chicago. In April 2006, he joined National University of Health Sciences as a full-time faculty member teaching Anatomy and Pathology. Based on his teaching style and clinical experience, and because they just enjoy his classes, his students have voted him "Teacher of the Tri" 10 times in the last 5 years. Recently, Dr. Khan was promoted to Associate Professor.
During his college years, Dr. Khan was very active in such sports as cricket, field hockey, and tennis. He has two sons, one daughter, and three lovely grandchildren.
Dr. Khan believes that his strength lies in his experience, and that no school can be better than its teacher. He works to build relationships with his students, and to drive them to their highest potential.
Patrick Schneider, DC student, said "Dr. Khan is tremendously dedicated to his students. He has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond what would normally be expected of an instructor. I am proud of him."
