About

Prior to joining CNU College of Medicine, Dr. Ahmed spent eight years in teaching anatomical sciences to students of medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, kinesiology and science at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. His teaching experience included, but not limited to, dissection-based gross anatomy, 3D anatomy, embryology and functional physiology. Dr. Ahmed has experience with several methods of teaching including didactic classic methods, problem-based learning, case-based learning as well as team-based learning methods. Dr. Ahmed supports an open-door policy with his students.

Research Interests

Dr. Ahmed is interested in conducting pre-clinical and clinical research on metabolic syndrome, Type-II diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD) at CNU College of Medicine. Part of his research at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine involved utilizing Synchrotron in measuring bone density in a comparison between diabetic and diabetic-hypertensive Zucker Diabetic Fatty Rat Models (a model mimics the human nephropathy model).
