Class of 2019

Danyah Abdullah Althuneyyan. I graduated as an honor student from the Clinical Nutrition Department, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University in 2019, and the Ideal student of 2018 of the College of Applied Medical Sciences. I had a chance after the third year to practice in the Royal commission Hospital in Jubail Industrial City, which prepares me before the internship year, that, in turn, increases my experiences in the field of Clinical Nutrition in three of the most prestigious hospitals in different cities in the Eastern Province. Even though the internship year coincided with the COVID-19 outbreak, the University had a significant role in making the internship successful. My appreciation goes to my department, represented by the chairman and the faculty, thank you all for your continued efforts, and I hope to repay your favors.

I learned from faculty who combined science, knowledge and good manners, which helped me to develop in the scientific and research field and graduated with an excellent grade with honors degree. I ask Allah to grant me to represent the department and the university in the near future.

‏Nowadays, I am working in the research field besides my own business as a clinical dietitian. However, as a clinical dietitian, you have a significant impact on the research field in different aspects. As when you're a student, the department establishes, develops, and encourages you to be a researcher in nutrition subjects.
‏After graduation, I tried to do my best to work on my own development in this area as an academic researcher in the nutrition field. The most important supporter was the faculty of the clinical nutrition department. They welcomed me at any time for any research topic without any limitations. They gave me their true opinions, support, and help to reach this level of experience regarding this area. I am beyond thankful for our great faculty for giving me a chance to be a part of their team in any research paper.
‏I have three published articles in different high-rank journals and three articles under review.
In conclusion: to be a researcher, it’s not something hard or easy, it’s all about your passion and how you can keep working hard on yourself skills by taking workshops, courses, and even something related to statistical analysis.
‏My aim is to deliver my sound to the largest possible number of people and expand a new finding that can help patients and reduce their suffering.

Hessa, that’s me. I’m a simple and spontaneous person. I detest hypocrisy, arrogance and selfishness. I’m always known to be an organized, loyal, sincere & short-tempered person.

I have learned a lot during my academic and career journey; however, ever since I join the front lines against covid-19, I have realized the importance of my role in the clinical field where mistakes can not be tolerated. Today my goal is to improve the Clinical Nutrition practices applied in the field, as well as to achieve the health goals at both the individual and community levels. and along the way, we will always remember the Clinical Nutrition Department faculty who taught us all the knowledge and skills we need to reach our goals and thank them for the continuous support and care we get from them

Fay Ibraheem Albahussain, Clinical Dietitian at the King Fahd University Hospital, Khobar. I graduated as a first honor student from the Clinical Nutrition Department, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University in 2015. After graduation, I volunteered at Dr. Ahmed Algarzaie Center for Bariatric Surgery. Then, I started my first work experience at King Fahd University Hospital as a pediatric dietitian. Although I have never thought of specializing in pediatrics, I found that it is a really interesting specialty that involves several fields. I also participated in supervising the enteral feeding of the long term patient care which was my old interest since I was a student.  Recently, I joined The Saudi Society for Clinical Nutrition Eastern Province as a board member. Clinical Nutrition is a multidisciplinary specialty. Completing the training in all the various fields, during the internship year, is essential to determine your area of interest.
