Full Profile

Dr Jundi qualified from Damascus University School of Medicine in 1980. Then, at the height of the Lebanese Civil War, he moved to Beirut, Lebanon, to undertake surgical training at the American University of Beirut (AUB), which, at the time, was the largest Trauma Centre in the Middle East, dealing with enormous numbers of war injuries.

He moved to the UK in 1985, and continued with his surgical training, until he chose a career in Emergency Medicine. Having completed his training, he was appointed as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in January 2000, where he still works. His specialist interests include Major Incident and Disaster Management, Resuscitation Training, and Medical Education.

In 2011, in response to the ongoing crisis that had engulfed Syria, his country of birth, he co-founded a charity to deliver aid and health care to civilian communities inside the war-stricken country. He currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Charity.

He has now undertaken Course Leader responsibilities for Disaster Medicine, and is involved in research, teaching and knowledge transfer through the various educational activities involved in this course.
