Ms. Mariam N. Mohammed is a first-generation Moroccan-American, first-generation college graduate, and native of Washington, DC with a passion for the arts and aspiration of becoming a medical doctor. Her favorite courses growing up were in the humanities and sciences, particularly art classes and AP Biology in high school. In 2008, she was awarded the Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Scholarship and attended The George Washington University on her academic merits. She graduated in the spring of 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and a minor in Public Health. Upon graduation, she found work as a medical scribe in Maryland’s second busiest Emergency Department. She gained experience in adult and pediatric emergency medicine working alongside doctors and physician assistants. Two years later, she was promoted to Project Leader and tasked to travel the country to implement new medical scribe programs on behalf of ScribeAmerica, LLC. She established a brand new staff of scribes for inpatient, outpatient, and emergency departments in a wide variety of specialties for clients of UnityPoint Health, Houston Methodist Hospitals, Yale New Haven Health System, and White Plains Hospital of New York. To refocus her efforts on the track to medical school, Mariam returned to Washington, DC in 2016 and began taking courses at Howard University and joined the W. Montague Cobb Research Laboratory. She is a member of the laboratory’s Writer’s Collective, where she is an author for the Backbones to Life children’s storybook series.
