Prof. MB Zaman, MD; FCAP.
Dr. Zaman was born in Sylhet, and studied medicine on a scholarship in King Edward Medical University, Lahore, Pakistan from 1964-69. His post-graduate training was in pathology from 1970-76 in Mount Sinai Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York. On completion of a Fellowship in Cytopathology, he was offered Assistant Professorship in Cornell University and served as Assistant and Associate Attending Pathologist in Sloan-Kettering for 16 years. His research was in “Early diagnosis of lung cancer by sputum cytology”.
He became Professor of pathology at New York Medical College and served there from 1991-2005. He was also the Chief of Cytopathology and Program Director of Pathology Residency at Westchester Medical Center. During this period and up until the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, he came to his native country a dozen times to teach cytology, particularly FNA-cytology to PG-students and Pathology Faculty of Bangladesh. These 3-5 days long teaching-sessions were arranged in the PG-Institutes of Dhaka and was attended by 100+ participants each time.
Dr. Zaman has dozens of peer-reviewed publications on lung cancer detection and has authored major chapters on FNA-cytology in Koss’ text book of cytopathology.
Dr. Zaman is a Diplomate of American Board of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and holds Sub-specialty certification in Cytopathology. He is a fellow of the College of American Pathologists and past-president of BMA-NA.
Dr. Zaman is now retired, but continues to teach Pathology Residents of New York Medical College and gives free online (Tele-pathology) histopathology consultation services for “Difficult cases of Cancer Diagnosis” to Bangladeshi Pathologists on a daily basis. The patients are not billed for this “Expert-consultation” from the USA.
From January 2022, Dr. Zaman initiated a systematic biweekly (Fridays BD-time 7-9pm) WebEx based virtual remote-course in Histopathology. A select group of 36 Professors and Associate Professors of Pathology from all PG-institutes of Bangladesh (with the potential to become effective teachers) listen and interact. The teaching faculty includes 2 of his former Residents/Fellows, now in leadership positions in the USA and Canada.
This “one-day CME” today, May 6, 2023, will update several common malignancies by Dr. Zaman and his team. The remote pathology course to train teachers in pathology, hopefully will continue in 2023.
