Dr. Ahmed was born in Berlin, Germany, and then moved to the US as a young child. She grew up in Northern Virginia just outside DC and attended the University of Maryland, where she majored in Arabic. Subsequently, she spent eight years in Washington, DC. She first attended George Washington University for medical school, where she completed the Medical Humanities Track. During medical school, she became interested in refugee and underserved healthcare, and was able to work at Bread for the City, a FQHC in northeast DC, in addition to participating in global health efforts in refugee camps in Lesvos, Greece.

She then completed her residency and chief year at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington DC. As a resident and chief resident, she became PHR-trained to conduct refugee asylum evaluations (and yes, they did them over Zoom during the pandemic!) She fell in love with medical education over the course of her training, and was drawn to Mary Washington Healthcare by the passion of the program and its leadership for resident education and development. Her other academic interests include women in medicine, quality improvement, infection control and prevention. In her free time Dr. Ahmed likes to run, go to comedy shows, and read as many fiction books as she can.
