Adam embraced in his Mom's coat
It is with great sadness that we inform the UC San Diego family of the sudden passing of one of our own UC San Diego Housestaff, Yasmin Ahmedi, MD on April 29th, 2015. Dr. Ahmedi is survived by her husband, Adnan Ghadiali, her three year old daughter Zahra, and her newborn son Adam.
Dr. Ahmedi was a first year fellow in the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and had joined us after completing her Pediatric Residency Training at Children’s Hospital of Oakland. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Ahmedi received her medical degree at the University of Washington School of Medicine. After her residency, she held a one year appointment as a Hospitalist Staff Member at Children’s Oakland before joining us here at UCSD Rady’s Children’s Hospital as a first year Pediatric GI fellow.
Yasmin was a true advocate for her patients and dedicated her time to delivering quality care at all times. She was a wonderful clinician, respected young teacher, and a great colleague. She was a devoted wife and mother and loved dearly as a daughter, sister, and friend. She had a calm, patient, and graceful way in her approach to the challenges in medicine and in life, and served as a true inspiration for many of the other trainees, students, staff and especially the faculty.
Yasmin’s exuberant and elegant ways in approaching new challenges in clinical medicine and life served as a great role model for many. She will be dearly missed.
We recognize that there are many who will wish to reach out to help the family. This fund has been set up to help the family with expenses (now and into the future) during this difficult time.
