Dr. Iqbal “Ike” Ahmed

E-mail Print PDF
I was born and raised in India, primarily in Bangalore. I went to medical school at St. John’s Medical College and subsequently immigrated to the United States of America. I did my residency in General Psychiatry at the Nebraska Psychiatric Institute and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. During my residency I took time to go to London and get training at Guy’s and Maudsley Hospitals. I then completed a Fellowship in Consultation/Liaison Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine at Boston City Hospital and Boston University School of Medicine. I subsequently became a faculty member at Boston University and Tufts University Schools of Medicine. I then left Boston and joined the John A. Burns School of Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii where I am a Professor of Psychiatry. It was here in the multi-ethnic societies, I develop my interest in cultural psychiatry.

I am board certified in General Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry, Psychosomatic Medicine, and also have certificates in Clinical Psychopharmacology and Neuropsychiatry. I was also certified in England as a Member of the Royal College Psychiatrists, and subsequently elected as a Fellow by the College.

I am currently a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and a Member of the American College of Psychiatrists. I am a member, and the former Chair of the Ethnic Minority Elderly Committee of the American Psychiatric Association. While I am primarily a clinician-educator, I have researched and published in the areas of Cultural Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry, Consultation/Liaison Psychiatry, Neuropsychiatry, and Psychopharmacology.
