The development of Dr. Baharak Khabazghazvini’s career is result of an extensive exposure to diverse cultures, populations and contrary environments. She has completed a second degree with summa cum laude as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner upon completing an accelerated combined BSN/MSN program for Foreign Educated Physicians at Florida International University.
At a young age, her compassion for mankind grew into a desire to become a healer; a devotee of medicine who can nurture and alleviate the pain and suffering of others, so she acquired the art of medicine. She successfully earned her Medical Degree from Azad University in Tehran, Iran.
Discovering the dynamics of the mind and the complexity of mental illness introduced her to evidence-based psychiatry where she took part as a research Sub-Investigator, in over five leading national-level research projects funded by the National Institute of Health, National Institute of Mental Health, as well as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
She has first-authored peer-reviewed publications and co-authored several published articles in highly recognizable national and international journals and co-authored three book chapters published by Nova Science Publishers in Environment, Mood Disorders and Suicide in 2010, and Child Health and Human Development in 2011.
