Going above and beyond to help others has always been important for Jamilah Alhashidi, M.D. — an approach that she practices daily as a chief resident in family medicine.
The OUWB alumnae (Class of 2019) says she practices it when spending hours on the phone with a distraught patient and when showing grace to patients who are late due to transportation issues.
She also draws on this ability when helping patients who struggle to make ends meet find cheaper prescription options, or need help understanding the importance of proper nutrition.
The list of ways Alhashidi goes above and beyond is almost endless — and she says it’s all for one primary reason.
“I went into medicine to help people and that’s something I never, ever want to forget,” says Alhashidi, who is in residency is at Beaumont Hospital, Troy.
