Background Information

Hackensack Pediatrics is a successful pediatric practice located near Hackensack University Medical Center. The practice began more than thirty years ago by Dr. Mona Tantawi. After graduating from Cairo University, she came to the United States where she earned many honors for her work. After she was hired as the first full-time female pediatrician by HUMC, she opened up Hackensack Pediatrics in 1985. The practice has been growing more successful and stronger with the help of my mentor, Dr. Mohamed Tantawi. The practice has six doctors along with many medical assistants. The practice has thousands of patients, which include newborns to twenty-six year olds.

Summary of Internship

At Hackensack Pediatrics, I have been given the opportunity to learn first-hand what itís like to be a pediatrician. Dr. Mo is a highly-respected pediatrician whose understanding ways and cheerful attitude combined with his vast knowledge and experience of pediatric care makes him a very sought after doctor. Every Thursday, I look forward to internship, ready for a new learning experience. Whether weíre dealing with a bad illness, or a newborn, there is always so much to learn, and there are always memorable moments every Thursday! While shadowing Dr. Mo, we observe, prepare up vaccines, and take notes of his diagnosis. The experiences Iíve gained already are insightful and better than expected, Iím glad I chose Hackensack Pediatrics as my internship!
