More about Dr. Shiraz S Ahmed
I was born and brought up in India, where I also received my first medical training. Later I emigrated to the USA and completed my internal medicine and chief residency in Boston. Following that experience I undertook a fellowship in geriatric medicine at the University of Washington. Currently I_m a hospitalist, a role in which I can put my expertise as an internist and geriatrician to work toward the care of hospitalized patients. Internal medicine with its complexity and challenges inspires me. In addition, during my residency I found particular joy and satisfaction in caring for the elderly. I_m also involved in hospital-based teaching of family medicine residents. My hope is that these newly-trained physicians will share my love of caring for patients and continue raising our standards of care. My soulmate-wife, along with my son and daughter, keep me intellectually challenged, happy, and content.
