Fady Hannah-Shmouni, M.D., DABIM, AHSCP, FRCPC, is a clinician investigator in endocrinology, hypertension, and biochemical genetics with clinical and research interests in the diagnosis and management of familial endocrinopathies, endocrine hypertension disorders, and inborn metabolism errors. For NICHD, he serves as director of the Office of Education’s Graduate Medical Education (GME); chief of the internal medicine, endocrinology, and genetics inpatient ward and outpatient endocrinology; associate program director of NIH’s Inter-Institutes Endocrinology & Metabolism Fellowship Program; and principal investigator of endocrine genetic and hypertension disorders for the Stratakis Laboratory’s section on endocrinology and genetics. He is the principal investigator on two NICHD protocols: “Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Primary Aldosteronism in Blacks” and “Observational Study of Males with Creatine Transporter Deficiency (Vigilan).”

In his role as GME director, Dr. Hannah-Shmouni is responsible for overseeing administrative and academic quality of all four clinical training programs within the institute; ensuring compliance with Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requirements and implementing policies and procedures for the clinical fellow population; and overseeing NICHD’s Physician-Scientist Development Program. This program focuses on recruiting, inspiring, and supporting young physician scientists to further their investigative careers into tenure-track positions that will support NICHD’s Strategic Plan. 

Dr. Hannah-Shmouni completed his clinical training in internal medicine at the Yale-New Haven Medical Center Program in Yale’s School of Medicine; in adult endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at NIH, with a focus on endocrine hypertension and genetic disorders under the mentorship of Dr. Constantine A. Stratakis; and in clinical biochemical genetics at the University of Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. He is board certified in internal medicine, endocrinology, and metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Royal College of Physician and Surgeons of Canada; and in clinical hypertension by the American Society of Hypertension. He is a fellow with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and an active committee member of the Endocrine Society Hormone Health Network, the Eastern Europe and Middle East Regional Advisory Group for the International Society of Hypertension, and the 2020 Hypertension Canada Guidelines.
