It is with profound sorrow that we share news of the passing away of Dr Mobeen A Sheikh (MBBS ’95) as a result of a tragic boating incident on Thursday, March 18, 2021 in the Caribbean. His son who was with him was also injured but has survived.
Originally from Lahore and Aitchison College, Mobeen was a hostel resident throughout his five years at AKU. He was known for his remarkable sense of humour, and equally for his polite and courteous nature, qualities that made him a joy to be around and easily with consensus, favourites of his class.
Inspired by his father, Dr Shahryar Sheikh, a top cardiologist in Lahore, Mobeen arrived at AKU with the singular focus of doing everything it took to prepare him for an ultimate career in cardiology. This goal took him from AKU to the University of Connecticut for residency in Internal Medicine, followed by multiple fellowships from Cleveland Clinic, Medical University of Ohio and Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, all aimed at perfecting the art of vascular medicine and interventional cardiology.
In addition to being Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Beverly Hospital, as part of the Beth Israel Lahey health system, he also continued to practice interventional cardiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.
Mobeen is survived by his wife, Abeera, two sons, both of his parents and a younger sister. He also leaves behind doting friends and classmates, who while celebrating his life and accomplishments, will remember him for his humility and kindness.
We ask that you remember him and his family in your prayers.
