Dr. Amr Madkour is an Obstetrician Gynecologist at The GW Medical Faculty Associates and an assistant professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. He is a graduate of Texas Tech School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he served as a chief resident and received the coveted Ungula Sinistra Award for excellence in surgery and patient care by the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Society.
Dr. Madkour’s clinical interests focus primarily on minimally invasive surgery, high risk pregnancy and international medicine, especially improving access and quality of care for women in resource challenged countries. That passion led him to teach at a university hospital in Hue, Viet Nam and assist in with an NGO struggling to reduce maternal and newborn mortality.
In 2012, he served as an obstetrician and gynecologist with Doctors Without Borders, and worked in the north of Nigeria providing emergency obstetric care for women where the mortality from complications of childbirth are among the highest in the world. The physically and emotionally challenging work he did there, prepared him to tackle many of the most challenging obstetric complications women face during childbirth.
Also, a published author, his goal in joining the MFA is to use his experience and expertise to provide women with excellent healthcare, from annual exams to minimally invasive procedures managing a wide variety of gynecologic problems, and to make every birth the safe and memorable event it deserves to be. He approaches his patients as individuals, tailoring medical care to specific needs, and encourages every woman to be an active participant in all aspects of formulating her treatment plan.
