Description

The Dundee years and their lasting impact on a life that took the road less travelled - Dr Saleyha Ahsan


Saleyha is a medicine graduate of the University of Dundee, class of 2006. Before her time here, she was the first British Muslim woman to graduate from the royal military academy Sandhurst as an army officer and went on to serve in the royal army medical corps with an operational tour of Bosnia. While studying medicine, after leaving the army she was awarded an award for her care of the elderly attachment and developed her career as a filmmaker.

As well as her work as an A&E doctor, Saleyha has had an impactful career as a television presenter, journalist, filmmaker, screenplay writer and has made documentaries focusing on the devastating impact on access to healthcare during war and has spent extended periods of time embedded with frontline medics.

During this event, Saleyha will discuss how her time at Dundee provided the perfect haven for forming ideas from outside the box in preparation for a unique career across medicine, media and humanitarianism.
