I’m from the northern part of Iraq, which is called Kurdistan. I graduated from Hawler Medical University, College of Dentistry in 2008, I became a senior house officer in maxillofacial surgery. We dealt with a variety of cases of oral cancer, craniofacial defects and after every surgery many questions arose, including how to manage the defects of the surgery and how to optimise the healing process. So I was looking for a course that potentially would be able to answer all these questions and eventually I found Regenerative Dentistry that is provided by King’s, is the course that I’m looking for. I enjoyed every single part of this course especially the last part which is when we work on our project, because you start to do experiments to get results and then analyse this data. You get an enormous amount of support and help during your whole graduate study and they always try to make sure to guide you and to build up your own personality as a successful researcher. At the moment I’m doing my PhD at King’s. My dream came true when I got a studentship from the Graduate School at King’s, which was fantastic. Back in my homeland there is really a high demand for well trained academic staff and skilful clinical researchers, so having this privilege from King’s will enable me to make a significant contribution in this regard.
