Ali Mohamadi

SB Nation Medical Expert

A die-hard fan of all things related to DC sports, Dr. Ali Mohamadi grew up in Washington during the Redskins' glory days of the Fun Bunch, the Hogs, and Joe Jackson Gibbs (v1.0). Following high school, he earned his undergraduate degree at Yale before earning his medical degree at the George Washington University School of Medicine. Ali then completed his residency and chief residency at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, followed by his subspecialty fellowship in Endocrinology at Johns Hopkins. Upon completing his training, he moved back to DC to start his career as a physician and, as in his youth, attend Redskins' home games (at FedEx Field this time instead of RFK Stadium). Ali has received numerous honors and awards during his career. In 2007, he was awarded a Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society Research Fellowship Award for his studies on growth hormone. Related to this research, he also was selected as a finalist for the Johns Hopkins Department of Medicine Clinical Research Award in 2007 and was the winner of an Endocrine Society Research Award in 2008. More recently, Ali was selected as one of “America’s Top Physicians” by the Consumer Research Council of America in 2009 and 2010.
