Muslim Dentist a Rising Star

By TMO Staff Writer

The Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine had its convocation on May 21, 2006. It will be heartening to the Muslim community that it has been extremely well-represented by one brilliant student, Fatima M. Ahmed.

There are three students out of class of seventy who graduated with high honors. She scored 99% and 100%, respectively, on the two parts of her licensing exam.

Because of her scholastic achievement and professional potential, she was selected for membership in the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Honor Society. Only eight students had this honor this year, but Fatima leads that list.

Fatima was also selected for the award of the American College of Dentists, Ohio Division for her scholastic attainment and her potential for professional achievement.

Ms. Ahmed also demonstrated outstanding leadership and academic excellence and received the Ealeanor Bushee Senior Woman Award.

Ms. Ahmed’s decency is shown by her past experience of donating care to many people. She has spent many hours providing dental treatment to uninsured needy people in the Free Clinic of Cleveland, and also by the time she spent providing dental help to people in rural Alaska, at an Indian reservation. She also spent one week of her time in the Dominican Republic providing dental care there.

All these services were well recognized at the convocation at CWRU.

Fatima is also a 2004 gold-medal winner, an honor given by the American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin.

Fatima has decided to specialize in Orthodontics. The Muslim Media Network congratulates Fatima on her excellence and wishes her good luck in her career.

Thank you Fatima for bringing honor and a good name to your parents, your community, your countries–the United States and India.

Fatima is the daughter of Dr. Iqbal Ahmed and Dr. Razia Ahmed and the sister of Dr. Maryam Ahmed.
