Member Bio

I am doctor / Tamer Mahmoud Roushdy – Associate Professor of Neurology at faculty of Medicine - Ain Shams University – Cairo – Egypt.

I am a PhD. MD holder in Neurology.

I graduated from school of medicine in 2006 and since then I have joined Neurology department and promoted within the department from resident to Assistant Lecturer in 2010 then to Lecturer in 2015 and then to Associate Professor in 2021.

My PhD was discussing the role of transcranial magnetic stimulation in post stroke aphasia. And since 2015, my scientific research is focusing on stroke and vascular neurology. I have 32 publications on Scopus since 2017 “Scopus Author identifier 57199153699”.

I have participated with my colleagues in achieving LGA accreditation for the stroke units of Ain Shams University hospital and Ain Shams University specialized hospital.

I was responsible for the training of residents to apply NIHSS for stroke cases in ER and was on call with them in decision regarding thrombolysis administration since its endorsement by ministry of health after a campaign that was led by Ain Shams Neurology department and I’m glad that my work was one of the factors that persuaded the ministry of health to endorse such treatment after a study that was published in international journal of stroke under the title “Egyptian experience in increasing utilization of reperfusion therapies in acute ischemic stroke”.

I led a study assessing stroke service availability in Africa that was recently published in international journal of stroke.

With my colleagues and despite the effect of Covid-19 pandemic yet we have learned much in dealing with stroke and Covid and we have published more than 7 publications in this special field including modified pathway for acute stroke management to achieve protection for doctors who are providing stroke services and avoiding any delay for patients in receiving their thrombolysis/thrombectomy therapies.

Together with colleagues in the initiative of treat and teach we provide virtual training program to Somalia through Telemedicine and Telestroke.

Along the past few years, I have supervised the Ain Shams University RESQ and SITS sites and I am the local coordinator for the EGASU SITS site.

On regular basis with the support of the Angels initiative I have trained different members of stroke units in Egypt and elsewhere like Jordan on applying for WSO - RESQ awards through zoom sessions.

Since January 2021, I am the manager of the stroke center at Ain shams university specialized hospital.

Our partners and sponsors

Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
