A Surgeon’s Trajectory Takes an Unlikely Swerve

He [Simon Plant, landlord] said that the Ashas were model tenants, but that Dr. Asha, a Palestinian with Jordanian citizenship, had something of a condescending manner. "He got a slight attitude," said Mr. Plant, an elevator engineer. "He had a sense of self-importance about being a doctor. You could definitely feel it."

Dr. Asha, 26, whose specialty is neurosurgery, recently started work at the North Staffordshire Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent. According to the General Medical Council in Britain, Mohammed Jamil Abdelqader Asha completed his medical studies in Jordan in 2004. His limited registration allowed him to work for the National Health Service under supervision. Until last July, he worked as a doctor at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, both in Telford.
A 26 year old neurosurgeon? OR was he a mere neurologist?
