Waqas Khan is a California based Pakistani-American. After migrating from Pakistan to US in 2006 in pursuit of higher medical education, he finished his residency in NYC in 2009 and ever since then has been practicing medicine in the state of California. He’s an American Board certified physician specialized in the field of Internal Medicine. Khan always had a spark for writing ever since he was a medical student and has currently finished working on three feature length scripts. His first two scripts “Children of Abraham” and “The Predicament” focus on stories about fellow immigrants fighting stereotypes while concurrently chasing their American dream. These are the stories of sheer conviction and never giving up on your
dreams even if the odds are not in your favor. They follow the themes of family values and friendships. They also address the different elements prevailing in the American society through the eyes of an immigrant, both good and evil, interacting simultaneously but eventually making America the best place to live. His 3rd script “Superdoc: Healthcare's Own Superhero” is a memoir of the hardships he had to face personally while completing his residency in a New York City hospital. It shares his experiences of cultural shock, making new, diverse but valuable relationships and at the same time laying a critical eye over the American health care system.
