Conemaugh Physician Group Welcomes New Critical Care Physician

October 10, 2019

Conemaugh Physician Group welcomes critical care physician Talha Mehmood, MD. Dr. Mehmood will provide inpatient care to critically ill surgical, medical, cardiac, neurology, and geriatric patients at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center’s intensive care units.

“Critical care is very individually focused. Each patient needs precision and engagement on a personal level,” said Dr. Mehmood. “I have a passion for helping this specific patient population. It’s the most critical time of their lives.” Dr. Mehmood is also fellowship-trained in palliative care which he feels helps him take a broader perspective of the patient’s care.

Dr. Mehmood earned his medical degree at Dow Medical College in Pakistan, and completed his residency at UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He completed a critical care fellowship at Stanford University, Standford, California, and a second fellowship in palliative care at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. He is board-certified in internal medicine.
