Associate Program Director's Message


Somwail Rasla, M.D.
Associate Program Director

I am a noninvasive cardiologist and the current Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program. I earned my medical degree at Alexandria University School of Medicine in Egypt. After completion of my residency and fellowship training, I joined Salem Hospital as a staff cardiologist with particular interest in cardiovascular imaging. One year after starting my new job, I joined the core faculty of Salem Hospital residency program.

For the Internal Medicine Residency Program, I have been working on developing a comprehensive cardiovascular curriculum and formulating comprehensive outpatient rotations.

I enjoy teaching residents and medical students the most. The size of the program provides an incomparable family feeling. The resources available for the residents help them achieve their dream careers.

Salem Hospital offers the community feeling with the tertiary care complexity of cases. I believe the Internal Medicine residency program provides strong training for tomorrow’s doctors.

I hope you will consider finding out if this is the right place for you to grow and thrive professionally and personally.

Best wishes,

Somwail Rasla, M.D.
