Dr. Matlooba Al Zadjali


Dr. Al Zadjali graduated from Arbian Gulf Medical University AGU in Bahrain in 2002. After two years of clinical practice she did her Masters in Public Health (MPH) 2005 followed by a clinical PhD in Heart Failure from University of Dundee and Ninewells Hospital in 2008. She joined the internal medicine 4 years training program under the Oman Medical Specialty Board (OMSB) in the summer 2008 and spent the final year of her training as a fellow in Heart Failure at the prestigious Imperial College and St. Mary's Hospital in London. Soon after returning from her Fellowship in 2013 Dr. Al Zadjali started working on her dream to enhance heart failure awareness in the public through her post as a specialist cardiologist at the Royal Hospital and the National Heart Center as well as in the MoH in the department of non communicable diseases (NCD).

Her major achievements are first, to create a home visit care for the heart failure patients in several regions in Oman at a primary care level. Second, to initiate and run a specialized heart failure clinic at a tertiary level at the National Heart Center. Beside her clinical responsibilities she was also the Head of Therapeutic Services Development in the Directorate General of Specialized Medical Care at the MoH.

Dr. Al Zadjali has many publications and a frequently invited speaker in national and international conferences in her field of expertise. By joining the International specialized center for Heart and Vascular Diseases she is hoping her expertise are available to the bigger population of Oman through a service that is wholistic, affordable and easily accessible.
