Mohamud R. Daya was born and raised in Kenya and Tanzania. He earned his B.S. and M.D. degrees from the University of British Columbia, completed a rotating internship at the Toronto East General Hospital, and then moved to Portland to study emergency medicine at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

He is also committed to improving all aspects of out-of-hospital care and is the Medical Director for Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and the 911 Dispatch Center in Washington County, Oregon. He received his M.S. degree in infection and health in the tropics from the London School of Tropical Medicine and also completed the DTM&H in 1998. He is currently the director of the Global Health Fellowship in the DEM.
