“Leaving the colorful walls, smiley faces and laughing children to enter the quiet and calm atmosphere settled it for me” ☺️ Meet Dr. Ashraf Harahsheh. After completing rotations in both pediatric and adult cardiology he knew pediatric cardiology was the route for him!
Since joining Children’s National in 2008 as an attending doctor, Dr. Harahsheh has worn many hats. He is currently the director of resident education in the Division of Cardiology, is active in both inpatient and outpatient care and is engaged in clinical research. Although he loves research, his interactions with patients and families are the most rewarding part of his job. “I love to give good news,” said Dr. Harahsheh. “I enjoy seeing a smile on the face of the children and their parents as I assure them they can participate in sports or even become the next president if they like!” Thank you for your commitment to care for our patients and the work you do to educate our residents! ❤️
