Tasnim Khan, MD, MSc
Co-Founder and Physician ShaMynds Healing Center
Individual and Group I also migrated into the administrative realm of medicine, becoming a career health care executive with the goals of improving care at the individual and population level. From 2009 -2011 I attended Harvard University's Masters of Science in Health Care Management program with a strong focus on policy and reducing disparities in health. I have received training in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy and Ketamine Assisted Therapy from the Institute of Integrative Psychiatry.
I am a family physician with over 25 years in clinical practice. I have worked in the US and Middle East. I feel immensely privileged to be a physician. I value how patients generously open their hearts, their lives and entrust me with their health and vitality. This is what I love and cherish most as a doctor-that portal of entry based on trust, truth and unwavering compassion. However, my 27 years of experience in healthcare in the US and abroad has taught me that the current modes of care and our ecosystem are fragmented and limit the possibilities of individual or population level change in outcomes. Mental health conditions are plaguing the world at an alarming rate of rise. This propagates widening gaps in health inequities, a parallel pandemic of mental health crisis and poor health outcomes. I have witnessed the continued breakdown of a healthcare system that once commanded world respect and now is unable to meet the capacity of our needs. In the last few years, I have had the fortune to experience alternative approaches to healing— based on being compassionate, scientifically backed although, still not well understood or respected and difficult for patients to access easily. At ShaMynds, we want to change that. I commit my practice to 'Holism'— seeing the parts and how they interrelate and their importance to the whole state- a practice embedded within a scientific and safe approach. I am on a quest to continue to keep my mind open, learn and heal. I respect science, I respect my patients, I respect change and I respect innovation and the sacred sciences. attended medical school and residency training at the University of Texas in Houston and became a Family Physician- a specialty that appealed to me because it embodies a whole person family centered approach of care. I was fortunate to work with many passionate and selfless mentors then and throughout my career.
