Allan Drash Clinical Fellowship 2019

Dr. Ayesha Ahmad

was awarded the Allan Drash Clinical Fellowship for 2019

Dr. Ayesha Ahmad is currently working as Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College & Hospital (JNMCH), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Aligarh, India for the last 7 years and has teaching experience of more than 10 years after post-graduation.

Dr. Ahmad graduated MBBS (2003) and subsequently did her post-graduation MD (Pediatrics) in 2008 from JNMCH, AMU, Aligarh. She did her Senior Residency at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, New Delhi.  She qualified Membership of Royal College of Pediatric and Child Health Examination (MRCPCH) in 2016. She was also awarded the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) Clinical Fellowship in 2016, and she worked at Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, United Kingdom.

Following her appointment as the Faculty, she established the Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrine clinic at the hospital – her special interest in Pediatrics. Recently, she has started the transition endocrinology clinic in collaboration with adult endocrinology division. Apart from attending to a myriad of endocrinology patients in the clinics, she is also involved in the inter-specialty pediatric endocrinology & diabetes referrals. As the patient profile with pediatric diabetes is quite varied here with different cultural and acceptance barriers involved, she is working towards the improvement of the awareness about diabetes with the involvement of patients` families and the use of social media. She is also working towards helping the patients themselves and their families/care givers in recognizing early warning signs of DKA and the need for early medical assistance. As the use of technological innovations for diabetes is still in early stages partially due to the costs involved, she is working with Governmental Agencies and NGOs to help provide the facilities for CSII wherever possible.

Apart from her clinical work, she is also involved in teaching and training of undergraduate MBBS students and post-graduate students pursuing Doctor in Medicine (MD) in Pediatrics and Child Health. She is currently guiding 2 students towards the award of their MD Degree. She is also invited for lectures in conferences and CMEs.  She is involved in running community awareness programmes for childhood obesity, vaccinations and other related general pediatrics topics.  She has number of publications in National and International journals and also contributed and authored chapters in endocrinology books.

In her free time, she likes to spend time with her family, travelling with them and enjoying sight seeing. She is an avid reader and likes to read fiction write-ups.
