Humanism honor for WCMC-Q alumna

Dr. Haya Ahram

Class of 2013
Family Medicine
Bronx, NY


WCM-Q alumna Dr. Haya Ahram has been awarded a prestigious prize in recognition of her commitment to teaching and her compassionate treatment of patients and their families, students and colleagues. 

Class of 2013 graduate Dr. Ahram, who serves as a family medicine doctor in New York, completed her residency in family medicine at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, University of Connecticut, where she received the Arnold P. Gold Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award and was inducted as a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society. 

Dr. Ahram is the first WCM-Q graduate to win the accolade and the first ever family medicine resident at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center to receive the award. She was one of six recipients of the award chosen from a program of more than 200 residents by a popular vote among third-year medical students at St. Francis. 

WCM-Q has consistently produced graduate doctors who have joined family medicine residency programs at elite universities. In total, seven graduates have enrolled on family medicine programs since the first graduating class of 2008, and five out of the college’s seven graduating classes to date have produced at least one family medicine resident.
