Dr. Moradi brings over 22 years of experience in medical education providing administrative and scholar activities in various administrative roles. He was founding faculty of the LECOM School of Medicine where he developed Problem Based Learning Pathway (PBL) curriculum for pre-clinical education. Before joining CNSU, Dr. Moradi served as Assistant Dean of Clinical integration and director of Primary Care Skills (PCS) and simulation center at PCOM school of medicine GA campus.

Dr. Moradi developed and implemented the use of standardized patients and clinical simulation as a teaching tool for pre-clinical medical education. Utilization of this methodology aimed to provide medical students with a realistic clinical environment to practice therapeutic communication, empathy, and humanism. This allows students to synthesize didactic pre-clinical knowledge and integrate it into a safe clinical practice. It also offers an alternative approach to enhance integration of classroom content to the clinical setting. Such integration play an important role in shaping the attitudes of medical students toward medicine and support the development of clinical reasoning.

Dr. Moradi is passionate about working with medical students and continually endeavors to support students with empathy and authenticity. He was awarded the Council faculty appreciation Award 2021 for commitment to student success through dedication to educating, inspiring, and guiding medical students through the didactic years of medical education. He is a NAOME Fellow in the Teaching and evaluation as well as attained the Senior Leadership Development Program (SLDP) status by AACOM.
