Dr. Najm's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Najm "NAME: Hani Najm, MD POSITION TITLE: Chair, Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery at The Cleveland Clinic Personal Statement I have 20 years of experience in the field of congenital heart surgery, both operating and managing children with heart disease and collaborating on multiple research projects that have enriched my understanding of these complex conditions. Multi-center databases are a valuable tool for evidence-based practice in congenital heart disease. During my training at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, I was exposed to complex congenital heart surgery and electronic research registries. After I finished my training, I continued to expand my experience in congenital heart surgery by establishing a premier congenital center in Saudi Arabia that performed more than 500 congenital cardiac procedures per year, of which I performed more than 60%. In my new role as the chair of pediatric and congenital heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, I would like to lead a transformation of the current pediatric cardiac services. I firmly believe that one of the most important pillars of a successful program is to be able to generate evidence rather than only apply evidence. This only becomes real with initiation of internal drive for research and collaborate with other institutions through PHN externally.
