In studies about Muslim patient health care experiences, Muslim participants had an expectation that providers should have a basic level of knowledge about their patients. Below are a few comments from the study.
"That every one of us has to sit, educating her doctor about her beliefs. It’s general information - he can take a two-hour presentation. He can learn this, and that’s it. And then you don’t have to sit and educate."
"It would be good for hospitals to... teach other people about our religion and our culture. Because sometimes, people act the way they do out of ignorance. They don’t know the beliefs and the way Muslims behave."
"A lot of doctors ask really basic things and you’re kind of like they should already know that stuff. "
"I think also we get stereotyped or maybe they have a few in-services at the hospital and everyone thinks they know everything about Muslims when we’re all very, very different."
"Participants said that cultural competency efforts should educate healthcare practitioners about basic Islamic beliefs and practices, thus helping to reduce stereotypical care and discrimination"
"I think we all know of stories where due to someone having an accent or appearing Muslim that sometimes the doctors may be more blunt with you, or they belittle you, or not give you the time of day"

Dr. Sekandari is a licensed clinical psychologist and director of mentalhealth4muslims.com.
Since 2014, Dr. Sekandari has been training service providers from diverse fields such as mental health, medical, educational, and even interfaith religious groups to provide culturally competent services to their Muslim patients and clients.
Dr. Sekandari has since put together years of training material in this very comprehensive training program to provide you with the relevant and necessary information to provide the most effective and culturally appropriate service to your Muslim patients and clients.
Due to the global rise of Islamophobia, getting factual information about Islam and Muslims can be difficult to find but the truth is:
"Dr. Sekandari offers a rare and important training to help increase cultural competence when working with the Muslim population, about whom there is much misinformation in the media, etc. She is clear and gentle in her own delivery, and creates a safe and powerful environment for learning. "
"I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Sekandari's presentation. She helped me understand the culture, history and important factors to consider when addressing mental health concerns. I found this to be an integral part of diversity specific training and an aspect that I had not previously received specific training on. Thank you, Dr. S!, "
"Dr. Sekandari provided a comprehensive understanding of working with the Muslim individual. Many pressing questions were answered about the Muslim community during the presentation that was not related to the topic but was on the participants minds due to the negative information in the Media about Muslims. Helped us understand our own biases when working with Muslims. I learned so much and feel more comfortable in my interactions with Muslims"
"I work with Muslims as a Physician's Assistant but didn't know enough about the culture and religion to understand culture specific concerns. Participating in the training has really helped my service delivery with my Muslim patients"
"The introductory class I took with Dr. Sekandari provided an excellent overview of pertinent issues for working with the Muslim community, in addition to specific strategies. I highly recommend her classes. Dr. Sekandari‘s teaching methods are clear, concise, and filled with usable strategies. I’m looking forward to her Master Class."
"Very informative training covering a wide range of topics relative to understanding and serving Muslim clients."
Muslims are one of the most diverse groups in the world. Given this diversity, there is a chance Muslims will come and seek your services and you might not know they are Muslim.

Although you don't NEED to be certified, the certificate can signify your commitment to cultural competence and give you an edge over other providers in your marketing.
Given the limited number of Muslim providers, we need the proper training of non-Muslim providers to best meet the health care needs of Muslim patients.
This rare opportunity to become certified as a provider can have great benefits for your practice as well as to the Muslim community.
Being certified to work with Muslims means something to the Muslims coming in to seek your services. It means you will understand their symptoms or difficulties from the perspective of their culture and religion.
This means A LOT to Muslims since their religion is a way of life for most of them. It also means they can relax knowing they are in capable hands. That trust could lead to more referrals and repeat customers.
