She was heavily involved with HPME administration, including the interviewing and recruiting of high school students, as well as the advising and mentoring of younger HPME classes. She has co-authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals, presented at national and international meetings, and has a keen interest in clinical research. After spending seven years in Chicago, Shirin recently returned home for the next phase of her training.
