Graduating valedictorian of his class at Allen High School at age 17, he was accepted to the prestigious Leadership in Medicine Program at Union College/Albany Medical College in upstate New York. This honor not only guaranteed him admission to medical school right out of high school, but also allowed him to concurrently earn his Masters in Health Administration while graduating summa cum laude with a double degree in Biology and Economics. He also took the opportunity to travel to Europe to study international health systems. While in medical school he served as co-president of the school’s chapter of Physicians for Human Rights, and he remains committed to relief work and philanthropy.

His training took him overseas yet again to complete a traveling fellowship in Spine Surgery, Trauma, and Orthopaedics at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in the UK. Finally, he worked with both the Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery Spine Teams as he completed the Harvard Medical School Combined Fellowship in Spinal Surgery at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA. While in Boston, Dr. Khaleel was able to use his extensive training and skills in Traumatology to provide Orthopaedic care to the many victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings.
