Ibrahim Salejee, MD
Sleep Disorders, Pulmonology and Critical Care
Dr. Ibrahim Salejee is a Pulmonary and Critical Care physician with Health First Medical Group. Born in Kosamba, India, he graduated from South Gujarat University with an undergraduate degree in microbiology. He then attended the Jawaha Lil Nehru Medical College in Belgauj, India, where he completed his Medical Degree.
Dr. Salejee's decision to pursue medicine began when he was a child, as he observed a lack of medical knowledge and proximity to medical care for his family members and friends. His grandmother died of cancer, a disease that physicians in India knew little about at that time. During Dr. Salejee's first year of medical school, his father died of a heart attack, lacking effective and nearby medical care.
Following completion of his medical degree, he served as a Junior Resident Medical Officer in surgery and internal medicine with Kitwe Central Hospital, and a Senior Resident Medical Office in obstetrics and gynecology, both in Zambia. Dr. Salejee moved to New York where he completed a Residency in internal medicine at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He then moved to Worcester, MA, where he completed a Fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at University of Massachusetts Medical Center, also serving on the faculty. Dr. Salejee is Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
From 1996 to 2004, Dr. Salejee served as Director of Cardio Pulmonary and Sleep Labs for the Brookville Memorial Hospital, in Brookville, PA, and the Punxsutawney Hospital in Punxsutawney, PA. In 2004 he was recruited to Melbourne to join the Health First Medical Group.
