Hi! I’m Far Rahman, originally from Queens, NY and currently a fourth-year naturopathic medical student at the University of Bridgeport School of Naturopathic Medicine. I’ve studied Nutrition Science as an undergrad at Syracuse University and now pursuing my masters in Nutrition along with my doctorate degree. My background in nutrition and my childhood dream of becoming a doctor have both sparked a desire to pursue a career that incorporates both of my passions! Those passions have led me to Naturopathic Medicine. However, the field is much more than just that; it encompasses a variety of non-invasive, yet effective modalities that emphasize prevention of disease and optimizing health. Taking it a step further, precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. Precision medicine is what makes the COE so special because we’re able to zero in on patients’ complex genomic and micro biome data to target specific imbalances. This would allow us utilize individualized data to institute preventive or therapeutic actions.
My interest as a medical student lies in naturopathic oncology and generative medicine. In the past, I’ve served as Chapter President of the Naturopathic Medical Student Association and currently authoring a chapter in the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Textbook. I will also have a published article on NDNR (October 2018 issue) on the relationship between ABO Blood Type and Cardiovascular Disease. Some interests I have outside of academia include painting, cooking, and traveling. Some recent places I’ve traveled to are Dubai, Thailand, Montreal, Singapore, Malaysia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Jamaica. I am honored to have Dr. D’Adamo as a mentor and to be able to help contribute to revolutionizing medical research. I’m very eager to train myself in computer programming, spearheading new research in naturopathic medicine and sharing my experiences as a Pathfinder!
