Sufian AhmadSufian Ahmad, M.D., Fourth Year Resident

I have started my final year of residency on our inpatient psychiatric unit at Norton Hospital.  As a senior resident, I generally arrive to the hospital around 7:30 am to pre-round on some patients, drink my morning coffee and prepare for morning treatment team at 8:00. Being a senior resident, my Attending lets me run the  morning treatment team to help prepare myself for practice after residency.
