Congratulations To Our 2022 Benchmark Director Spotlight of the Quarter!

Our Director Spotlight of the Quarter is Ahmed Alshawwaf, M.D.!

🩺 University of Baghdad – Bachelors
🥼 New York City - Residency

Dr. Alshawaff has been working as an internist at Palomar Health (Escondido and Poway) for the past year and currently serves as the Hospitalist Associate Medical Director at both sites. He was inspired to pursue internal medicine when he realized that it would give him an opportunity to combine clinical diagnostics on a wide range of complex and common conditions with a personalized and compassionate approach to medicine. He is passionate about the complex interactions within the human system, the ability to utilize broad thinking each day, and the relationships that he develops with his patients. He is immensely grateful to his team at Palomar and their positive energy, and he is proud of having created such a world class program throughout the last year.

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Alshawwaf enjoys traveling, hiking, and being active. He would also like to acknowledge his wife and 2 children, who motivate him to be a better healthcare provider everyday.
