Research Interests

Dr. Ahmed's academic interests include cardiac transplantation as well as mechanical circulatory support and ventricular assist. He is particularly interested in examining the health care disparities of underserved individuals within the advanced heart failure population and the complex dynamics between patient, community and physician. In addition to authoring several papers, he has lectured on spirituality in medicine and medical ethics, and has founded a free-clinic in Gainesville, Florida.
