About the Speaker
Sommer Aldulaimi is a child of immigrants from the Middle East who completed her undergraduate degree in physiology at the University of Arizona. She continued on to complete medical school at the U of A, with a special focus in global health and serving the underserved. She did several rural, underserved, and global health rotations including trips to Mexico and Honduras. She then graduated from the University of Arizona’s South Campus Family Medicine Program, with her last year as Chief Resident. During residency, Dr. Aldulaimi started a global health track at South Campus and worked with mentors and other residents to develop the curriculum for the track. She completed the track with a rotation in rural Ecuador. After residency, she worked in rural Alaska practicing full spectrum medicine. She is now back at the University of Arizona and is doing adult and pediatric inpatient, outpatient, newborn care and OB; and she is core faculty, Co-Director of the Global Health Track she started, and the Associate Program Director of the residency program she graduated from. She continues to do Global Health and has taught postpartum hemorrhage in Ecuador and neonatal recusation in Tanzania. She also continues to be involved in the community and service continues to be very important to her. Dr. Aldulaimi’s passion is training residents to work in underserved areas both domestically and abroad. Her special areas of interest are global health, rural health, underresourced medicine, simulations (she is also core simulation faculty for the College of Medicine), emergency scenarios and code blues, and maternal-child health.
