      Dr. Morshed completed his undergraduate education at Harvard University. He completed his medical education and residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. During his residency he was awarded the Orthopaedic Research and Education Society Clinical Research Training Fellowship which funded his studies towards a Master of Public Health degree and eventual Doctor of Philosophy in Epidemiology from the University of California, Berkeley. After residency, Dr. Morshed traveled to Seattle, Washington where he completed a clinical fellowship in orthopaedic traumatology at Harborview Medical Center. In 2009, he joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, (UCSF) as an attending surgeon at the San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH). Dr. Morshed has published multiple research manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, textbook chapters and has been awarded numerous awards and grants for his work in clinical outcomes research in orthopaedics and traumatology.
