Mariam Ahmed, DO
About me: I grew up in Chicago and my family is here. I went away to MO for medical school, but I wanted to be back home for residency. I did engineering in undergrad before deciding medicine was the right fit for me.
Why Resurrection: I rotated through or interviewed at quite a few programs in Chicago. I absolutely loved my rotation here. It felt like I fit right in. Res is like one big family, and the attendings, office staff and residents are absolutely phenomenal. The hospital is located in a nice neighborhood and I just loved it. I didn't have to work at fitting in, and ultimately, I decided that even though the drive to Res is nearly 30 miles for me, I was just happiest here.
