Dr. Ahmad's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ahmad "Dr. Ahmad earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) with a minor in Humanities/Health Care and Social Issues, where he first cultivated his commitment to the medical profession. Following college, he joined AmeriCorps*VISTA, a national anti-poverty service program where volunteers serve in communities throughout the US, focusing on enriching educational programs and vocational training for the nation's underprivileged classes. He worked as a program coordinator for Family Pathfinders, a partnership of community volunteer teams in Houston, Texas. His helping nature grew. After completing medical school at the Ross University School of Medicine, Dr. Ahmad worked at the Mount Sinai Medical Center as a Liver/Kidney/Pancreas Transplant Liaison, where he worked directly with the transplant psychiatrist and solidified his appreciation in passion for trying to help alleviate emotional distress. This led to his pursuit of psychiatry. He completed his psychiatry residency and a child psychiatry fellowship at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, where he also served as a Chief Fellow. He found child psychiatry a way to have a more complete knowledge of his patients, as learning more about the early stages of a wide range of mental illness helped him better understand how this played out later in life."
