After immigrating to the United States during the early 2000s to pursue a better life, Noura Farid Mansour attended the University of Detroit Mercy, earning a Bachelor of Science in biological sciences in 2003. She subsequently received a Doctor of Medicine from the Saba University School of Medicine in the Netherlands and completed an internal medicine residency at Saint Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital in 2008 and 2011 respectively. While pursuing her studies, Dr. Mansour gained valuable expertise in the field as a medical assistant with Farmbrook Medical Building, manager of Hiller’s Market and medical assistant for the office of pediatrician Dr. Hikmat Gogue. Backed by nearly a decade of expertise, she excels today as a physician with TeamHealth and as a hospitalist with IPC.
Dedicated to remaining aware of ongoing developments in the field, Dr. Mansour aligns herself with the Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society, the Michigan Medical Society and the American Academy of Physicians. Previously, she maintained her affiliation with the Chaldean Federation of America. An avid civic advocate, she contributes by participating in several school and community activities, including teen pregnancy education and a senior citizen outreach program. Throughout her career, Dr. Mansour also volunteered with the Southeast Michigan Chief Resident Workshop, the American Medical Student Association and The Caribbean Cooperation in Health Organization.
Drawing on years of professional knowledge, Dr. Mansour has conducted research alongside other industry scholars and contributed to several conferences, including “A Case Report of May-Thurner Syndrome,” which was presented at the American College of Physicians’ meeting in Michigan in 2009. She had earlier served as a research assistant in the endocrinology department of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where she helped carry out research on diabetes compliance measurements. In light of her outstanding accomplishments, Dr. Mansour received the Graduation Scholarship Award through the Arab American Outreach Service in Southfield, Michigan in 1994. Over the years, she also earned a Certificate of Excellence from the Chaldean Federation of America and was consistently featured on her Medical School’s dean’s list.
In light of her many achievements in the field, Dr. Mansour was also nominated for a Joy of Nursing Award from the St. Joesph Mercy Oakland in 2017. The advice that Dr. Mansour offers fellow members or others aspiring to work in the field is being compliant. She believes that complying with regulations and minimizing unnecessary interaction is crucial. There are many changes happening actively in healthcare and Dr. Mansour is eager to see what’s to come before the end of the year. She has observed that the way one practices medicine has changed. Other aspects such as reimbursement has also changed. Today, the trend for healthcare providers seems to lead directly to working in hospitals – which has in turn diminished the need for private providers.
The highlight of Dr. Mansour’s career was moving from a third world country to the United States and going to school full-time to support her family as an undergrad. She attributes her success to compassion that she had, which is missing in many healthcare workers these days. In five years, Dr. Mansour still wants to be in direct contact with patients while completing some administrative work. She is working towards obtaining her own private hospital group alongside many the partners she works with currently. Outside of her professional endeavors, she enjoys reading, drawing, listening to music and tutor in her spare time.
