Dr. Ragheb received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Florida A&M University in 2008. He completed his pharmacy practice residency with a focus on anticoagulation and primary care at the Tallahassee Outpatient Veterans Affairs Clinic and continued to serve veterans there as a clinical pharmacy specialist until 2014.
Dr. Ragheb accepted a position in 2014 as the anticoagulation program manager at the Tennessee Valley Health Systems (TVHS) Veterans Affairs. He initiated and oversaw service operational initiatives including the development of the local anticoagulation stewardship program which led to the improvement of anticoagulation care across Tennessee Valley, resulting in more than a 10% absolute increase in time within therapeutic range as well as the oversight of more than 4500 patients on direct oral anticoagulants. These efforts culminated in TVHS receiving the distinction as an anticoagulation “Center of Excellence”. His site was one of the first VAs to adopt the use of the DOAC population-based management tool and is a pilot site for several improvement initiatives such as the VAs national bleed/clot report population-based management tool.
Dr. Ragheb serves as a resource in assisting other VA facilities with developing their own outpatient stewardship programs. He also serves as the facility’s Ambulatory Care Post-Graduate Year Two Residency Program Director and has led residency driven anticoagulation research.
Dr. Ragheb has the privilege of serving on the Anticoagulation Forum’s Centers of Excellence committee and has contributed several resources aimed at improving anticoagulation care.
