About the Bashir Ahmad Scholarship
The late nephrologist Bashir Ahmad, MD, was a well-liked and respected
member of the USC Arcadia Hospital Medical Staff for more than 30 years.
During his career, Dr. Ahmad served as hospital Chief of Staff as well
as on the hospital Board of Directors.
Dr. Ahmad was always an advocate of continuing education, so after his
death in 2013 the medical staff and his family joined forces to honor
the physician by creating the Bashir Ahmad Scholarship to fund the educational
needs of hospital staff. This year more than 20 staff members were presented
with scholarships of up to $1,000. Congratulations!
