Brief Biography

Umar Ahmad is a graduating medical student from New York. He started his medical education by doing pre-med in the Dominican Republic in Spanish. From there he went to Medical school in the Caribbean. Since the start of medical school, he has volunteered and led many programs in which students were taught and underprivileged people in the communities were given the opportunity to healthcare and advice, some of whom have never seen a doctor throughout their whole lives. He devoted countless hours, while in school, to managing different free clinics set up around the island. He has done his rotations in Chicago alongside some of the best doctors in the US.

During his clinical years he has published Case Studies in the distinguished Cambridge journal CNS Spectrums and has done presentations at nationally prominent conferences such as Translational Medicine and Oncologists Meet and NEI Congress.

He is a hardworking student who is passionate about his future and is aiming to pursue a career in Surgery with a Cardiothoracic specialty. He likes to learn new languages, meet new people, spend time with his family, travel, play soccer, ping pong, and chess.
