Ahmad graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine in 2014. With an engineering background and an interest in cochlear implants, and device development, Ahmad continued his medical career with a residency at the University of Pennsylvania in Otorhinolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He has published several papers on the effects of cochlear implant technologies in the elderly and has presented his findings at national and international conferences. In addition, Ahmad is currently developing a device to facilitate swallowing in neurologically devastated patients.
