Match Day 2016 was exciting around the country but especially for residents and faculty at Hurley Medical Center, Flint, Mich.
John Hebert MD, director of Hurley’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program, said his new residents are excellent academically and are also pleasant people.
Here are some brief bios about the new ob-gyn interns, who make up the graduating class of 2020:
Ahmed Abdullah MD
From Flushing, Mich., this Michigan native graduated from Windsor University Medical School, Cayon, St. Kitts. He already has research experience with Hurley faculty member, reproductive endocrinologist Mostafa Abuzeid MD. Dr Abdullah enjoys watching sports, staying healthy and active, and spending time with his family.
Huda Afaneh MD
Originally from Detroit, Dr Afaneh is very familiar with Flint, since she recently spent two years on the Flint Campus before graduating from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, East Lansing. In her spare time, Dr Afaneh enjoys running and weight-training, as well as reading, drawing, painting, and watching theater.
Stephanie Leiva MD
This Costa-Rica native hails more recently from Florida, though she did graduate from medical school in Costa Rica. She recently helped with research projects at Johns Hopkins University, and she hopes to find time to continue her favorite activities of teaching, reading, playing sports and dancing.
Ahmed Moustafa MD
When he’s not on duty, Dr Moustafa may be found playing tennis or fishing in one of Michigan’s many lakes – or off-roading and finding new people to befriend. He graduated from the University of Cairo, Egypt, assisted with research in reproductive endocrinology, and completed an observership at Hurley.
