Blerona S

- Research Program Mentor

MD at University of Tirana


Microbiology, Endocrinology, Pharmacology, Cardiology, Pain management,


I completed my education from elementary up to the senior year of high school in my home town with honors. I was admitted at the prestigious Tirana University School of Medicine, in Tirana, Albania. After my graduation I immigrated to the USA and have been engaged in preparatory courses with the goal to be ECFMG certified. Currently I am working as a research fellow, and I am involved in 4 studies, mainly for the pain management. I enjoy reading books and have always been a voracious reader.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Research article/Topic review

In this project, you will write a research/topic review that you will choose. The topics can vary from side effect of a medication, or a specific disease. We will find publications of the studies that were already done, taking conclusions and do our own review.

Languages I know

Albanian, Serbian

Teaching experience

During my studies, helping/tutoring some of my colleagues for multiple exams, helped me understand that teaching was a right choice for my career, and now I am motivated to teach, and to put into practice everything I learned. I enjoyed this experience. Every day was different, and I felt like I understood each student better and better as we progressed in different topics. Since I moved to the US, I have been a part of AAMS, a society created mainly for professionals like myself, that want to continue their medical education. Being there gave me the opportunity to lead, advise and show them the path for walking into this journey. Of course, I know I still have a lot to learn, and hope to continue my studies while teaching.
