Ghazi Rayan, MD delivers this pivotal and immersive history detailing the growth of medical progress and its connection to the movement of people and ideas across borders.


From the desk of acclaimed speaker and academic Ghazi Rayan, MD comes a broad and ambitious work of both history and culture.

Beginning with the origins of medical practice in ancient history and continuing to the present day, our understanding of healthcare has relied largely on the free trade of ideas. Today in American society, we owe a vast amount of our heritage to the innovations and perspectives that have traversed national borders.


Featuring the biographies of industry-leading first-generation immigrants, Immigrant Physicians tracks the major development of the field from antiquity through the 20th Century, seamlessly combining them with story telling, lessons on culture, anatomy, and practice. This work allows students of history and medicine to:


- Study the evolution of medical thought across multiple periods of history, connecting individual achievements to methodological advancements in the field

- Understand the significance of immigration for cultural and technological development

- Tie the global historical narrative more closely to the story of American history

- Recognize the current state of the American healthcare system, how it came to be, and the challenges it presently faces


Readers will learn the history of medicine and healthcare over thousands of years, with a specific focus on U.S. history, including the Revolutionary era, the Civil War, and the great leaps taken at the turn of the century. Delivering a powerful, nonpolitical message, Dr. Rayan makes a compelling case for the importance of legal immigration to the future of progress.
