Nabil Othman, MD
Growing up I never planned to be a doctor. I wanted to be a soccer player! I would practice every opportunity I had. I even kicked soccer balls against the kitchen cabinets at night…which my parents LOVED!
When I was 17 I broke my ankle- suddenly my soccer dreams were put on hold. I spent an entire summer in my parent’s basement thinking about my life. After completing my senior year of high school I attended Oakland University hoping to play college soccer.
My girlfriend at the time convinced me to take general chemistry with her. After a month I promptly switched my major to Biochemistry and decided I wanted to be a doctor. The two of us broke up later in our Freshman year of college. Years later we re-established our friendship and remain close today.
Currently I’m in my final year of residency at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
- BS in Biochemistry from Oakland University in Rochester, MI
- MD from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI
- Anesthesiology Residency at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, CA
- Critical Care Fellowship at Texas Heart Institute in Houston, TX
After residency I will complete a critical care fellowship in Houston, TX. Currently i’m applying for a second fellowship in cardiothoracic anesthesiology.
After my 14 years of training are over I will be an expert in the perioperative care of cardiac surgical patients. I will also have expertise in general anesthesiology, cardiac anesthesiology, and critical care.

In my free time I enjoy fitness, the outdoors, and binge-drinking sparkling water. My favorite hikes include the Annapurna Circuit, Mount Whitney, Ka’au Crater, and the Kalalau Trail.
I’ve been an avid Crossfitter since my 3rd year of medical school.
I also write books. My first one titled “Vigilance: An Anesthesiologist’s Notes on Thriving in Uncertainty” will be released in June 2021. Cover is below!
