Dr. Zahi Hakim Museum

  • ethnographic museum
  • collection museum

Blat, Marjeyoun district

In the Spring of 2019, Dr. Zahi Hakim generously gifted the Lebanese American University a collection of X-ray tubes and radiology antiques he had painstakingly sought, acquired and maintained over more than 60 years. The collection is now on display at the Chagoury Health Sciences building in Byblos, next to the auditorium, where it can be viewed by visitors and LAU’s medical scholars.

Dr. Zahi Hakim has been practicing medicine for decades. He obtained his medical degree from St. Joseph University in 1956 before specializing in diagnostic radiology at the Institut Français de Radiologie, Hôtel-Dieu de France in Beirut. He went on to complete multiple rounds of training in France and Germany, won a fellowship in neuro-radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and co-founded the School of X-ray Technologists at Notre-Dame du Liban Hospital in Jounieh.
