Dr. Rania Saleh was born and raised in Palestine, and completed her Medical school at Al-Quds University in Jerusalem. She is fluent in both English and Arabic. Having moved to the United States in 2006, she finished her residency in Internal Medicine at Advocate Christ Medical Center & University of Illinois at Chicago, and as well, her fellowship in Infectious Diseases at Rosalind Franklin University before joining Southwest Infectious Disease Associates (SWIDA) in 2015 which she considers her second family. According to Dr. Saleh, “Medical field has always fascinated me since I was young. Achieving a doctorate degree was a journey of hard work, though I understand that being a patient is even much harder, especially if that patient is a family member or close friend. For that reason, I endeavor to treat all my patients as if they were a member of my family”. Dr. Saleh may not have ample time for hobbies or outdoor activities, but she enjoys spending her free time with her two sets of twins, her husband and siblings too.
