Dr. Muhammad Nurul Momen

Board Director & Consultant Psychiatrist

I held several leadership and executive positions in US Hospital systems where I successfully led the departments with profit and best clinical care to our patients with passion, empathy and professionalism. For the last 5 years I have been working with Education Department at Western Reserve Education Authority in Warren, Ohio to start Residency Training in Psychiatry and now reached to a final stage to start the Program. I have been appointed the Program Director of Psychiatry Residency Training to launch this new medical specialty in this area.

I am concurrently holding the position of Chairman of the Department. Prime factors to my success of years of management experience are clear communication and expectations for transparency which led to effective collaboration within leadership group. Any organization achieves positive outcome when everybody works together from the entry level employees to the executives and board of directors. My message to all is to strive for the best result, no thought of failure, challenging yourselves, every action to be guided by personal integrity, be mindful that impact matters more than intent, always learn by doing, paying attention to own personal and professional life, be bold and have big dreams.

Basic life philosophy, I believe Human to Human empathic interaction and connecting all individuals you come across with Honor and Respect.
