Dr. Moftah graduated in 1988 from the University of Winnipeg with double major in Physics and Math. He was the winner of several medical prizes, including the University Golden Medal. He received his Master of Science degree in Nuclear Physics at the University of British Columbia in 1991 and his PhD degree in Particle/High Energy Physics in 1996.
From February 1996 till November 1997, Dr. Moftah worked at UBC and TRIUMF as a Post-Doctoral fellow and then as a Lecturer. In November 1997, Dr Moftah won a scholarship from the AAPM to join the McGill University Radiation Oncology Physics Residency Training Program under the supervision of Prof. Ervin Podgorsak. In 1999, he became the first resident graduating from the first Canadian CAMPEP accredited residency training program. During the period of November1998-July 2001, he was employed as a Clinical Physicist at the Department of Medical Physics, McGill University Health Centre.
Dr Moftah is board certified in radiotherapy by the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine and is a fellow of the same College. In July 2001, Dr. Moftah took on a senior medical physicist position at KFSH&RC in Jeddah where he established a Medical Physics Department and became its 1st Chairman in February 2004. In September 2005, Dr. Moftah moved to the main KFSH&RC campus in Riyadh and became the Chairman of the Department of Biomedical Physics. He served as a clinical radiotherapy physicist and consultant at various distinguished institutions. Dr. Moftah focus has been on setting up medical physics and radiotherapy services as well as the development of state-of-the-art radiotherapy techniques. Dr. Moftah was selected as one of five eminent experts to serve on the IAEA Independent Panel of Experts on Human Health for the Comparative Assessment of Nuclear Technology. He was Counterpart for several IAEA TC projects as well as the chairman of the IAEA ARASIA Clinical Residency Training Working Group. Dr. Moftah served as chairman of conferences, courses and workshops, the last of which is the 6th International Conference on Radiation Medicine (ICRM2020), www.radmed.org. Dr. Moftah is a member of several international and national professional societies. He has published 56 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 34 conference proceeding articles and 62 abstracts. He presented 90 invited presentations and 94 conference presentations. He is the Project Owner for the $ 10 Million KFSH&RC transformation project “Integrated Biomedical Physics Center: Delivery of Precision Radiation Medicine”, which includes setting up a medical 3D printing facility and functional MRI facility. Dr. Moftah is an Adjunct Professor at McGill University.
