With an academic and clinically broad-based training in medicine, Dr. Rumana settled within the TX Medical Center in Houston and became USMLE certified. There, she expanded her clinical skills and experience during a number of clinical rotations in prominent hospitals. During this time, she developed a keen interest in fundamental changes in pathophysiology and their translation to clinical medicine. Simultaneously, she was employed by the U. S. Dept. of Education in the Federal TRIO Program. Having completed a certification in Clinical Research sponsored by the National Institute of Health, she participated in a number of projects in cardiometabolic risk and clinical outcomes. With a concern for enhancing patient care at all levels, her attention turned to the effects of controlling individual risk factors, but also to overcoming barriers to evidence-based care at the population level. Influenced by her involvement in primary and secondary prevention of disease, she focused on information flow, reasoning/decision-making, concepts and usability in medicine. As such, she completed a Masters In Biomedical Informatics at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston. During this period, she gained further training in Healthcare Data Analytics while developing an EHR decision model in the Capstone Report for the Harris Health System. Dr. Rumana has also served as a peer reviewer for critical care manual chapters, and for the American Medical Informatics Association. Concurrently, she independently developed and completed posters and PowerPoint presentations related to her own work. She is a member of the American Heart Association, American Geriatrics Society, Endocrine Society, National Lipid Association, N. Y. Academy of Sciences, the American Society for Preventive Cardiology Southern Medical Association, Lifestyle Medicine Education Collaborative, International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology, and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society in Houston. Dr. Rumana continues her career roles in clinical medicine at the New York Institute of Technology, together with research in ongoing projects.
