About the authors

Dr. Haifa Alotaibi is an Umm Alqura University graduate (UQU) with an excellent GPA and honor degree. She developed an early interest in education. When she was a medical student, her notes had been helpful to her colleagues, and she was known for her works among her college graduates.

After graduation, she wanted to pursue an academic job in addition to her surgical training, so she joined Taif University (TU) as a lecturer. Her teaching ability was recognized by her seniors and appreciated by her students.

Recently, she finished her surgical training and certified as a surgeon by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties. During her residency, she was responsible for her training program's academic activities and always taught and educated her junior colleagues.

She likes to simplify difficult information, making it easy to digest and memorize without compromising its depth and importance. In addition to that, she is an artist who implemented her talent in demonstrating and illustrating surgical anatomy and explaining the steps of surgical operations. She used her academic potentials and drawing talent to make this book a single most crucial source in preparing for clinical board exams for either local or international surgical trainees.

For her, surgery is art, and surgeons work in the human body with diligence and care as the artist does on his/her Canvas. She enjoyed joining science and art in her book. Her book is a creative work that helped her, and her friends successfully pass the board exam, and she is sure that it will help her junior colleagues.
