Al Razi movement

Background

In late 2013, the WONCA East Mediterranean region (EMR) formed a group specifically for young and future general practiioners/ family physicians in their region. The movement is called Al Razi. It has been officially endorsed by the Wonca EMR council and officially launched at the region after the Wonca EMR executive board meeting Razi was the preeminent pharmacist and physician of his time. Muhammad ibn Zakariyā Rāzī (Arabic: أبو بكر محمد بن يحيى بن زكريا الرازي‎ Abu Bakr Mohammad Bin Yahia Bin Zakaria Al-Razi) (Persian: محمد زکریای رازی‎ Mohammad-e Zakariā-ye Rāzi) was born in 854 in Persia, and died in 925. He was a physician and teacher and is credited with several "firsts", most notably the clinical distinction betweeen smallpox and measles.
