Department of Pediatrics
School of Medicine

Congratulations to Dr. Aly for being nominated as AMT Educator of the Month for November 2018. He shows great dedication and enthusiasm for teaching his students in the School of Medicine.

“ Dr. Aly met with us on his off days to teach us more about Cardiology. He went the extra mile for us as students and was really committed to helping us learn the basics of Cardiology. He challenged us to think about different concepts every day, and it was a valuable experience that I have not encountered thus far. Overall, Dr. Aly is a great doctor and teacher who is committed to teaching and is always willing to help out his students."

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Aly for this well-deserved honor.
