Aliye Runyan, MD

Reproductive Health Strategist

Aliye is a former AMSA Education & Research Fellow and is so excited to rejoin the organization which provided her inspiration throughout medical training. She attended the University of Miami SOM, and spent a year as a research fellow at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. After graduating medical school, she worked full time for AMSA as their Education and Research Fellow, and then went on to residency in ob-gyn at Wayne State University/ Detroit Medical Center.

She now works clinically in family planning/ gynecology in Westchester County and Queens, NY. The intersections of reproductive health, rights, and education are what she is most passionate about! She also loves being a mentor and helping others navigate the often dysfunctional systems of medical training. She believes our systems must do better with wellness throughout the many years of training and that we must advocate for ourselves!
