Biography

About Shazia Goraya, MD

Education and knowledge were the most important guiding principles in our home. I attended school at the Christian School of Pakistan. Then I received the degree from a prestigious medical school and followed it with internships in general medicine and surgery. After that, I joined the Civil Service of the country and served the underserved poor in remote areas until I was married to my husband, Tanvir Y. Goraya, PhD.  I moved to the United States, did another residency, and after a few years in private practice joined the Cleveland Clinic. I am happy being a U.S. Citizen and the mother of Sarah, in addition to being able to help fellow human beings by practicing preventative, curative internal medicine, especially in my area of special concern, osteoporosis.

As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
