A Personal Note from Dr. IKRAM
I am originally from Chicago and moved to Dallas when I was 10 years old. I guess you can say I am a “common law” Texan. I attended both undergrad and medical school in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area.
I originally was interested in obtaining a PhD in Virology and Immunology but fate had something else for me in store. During medical school I always knew I was going to end up in a primary care setting and family medicine was an obvious choice for me. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with patients while helping them address their acute and chronic conditions. My goal is to empower patients to be the navigators of their own health by distilling my medical knowledge in a way that is both comprehensive and easy to understand.
I have recently taken a greater interest in physician advocacy groups and would like to involve myself more throughout residency and in the future. Especially in today’s climate, I feel its paramount that physicians guided by evidence based medicine should be at the forefront of our nation’s medical decisions. I am also very interested in the use of technology and its integration with medicine. Digital health is shaping the way we practice medicine everyday and I find myself wanting to be part of that ever changing frontier.
What drew me to UTMB’s residency program was the wide breadth training in both an outpatient and inpatient setting that I feel are crucial to being a well rounded primary care physician. From the day one the faculty and staff have been amazing and have always shown a genuine vested interest in their residents and the overall program. I am very happy to be part of the UTMB family medicine team and would like to make a positive impact during my time here.
