                             Each year during Medical Alumni Weekend, the Duke Medical Alumni Association honors the achievements
                             and contributions of outstanding members of the DukeMed family.
                               Nominations are accepted each summer and evaluated by an awards committee, the Medical Alumni Council,
                             and the School of Medicine Executive Committee. Chosen honorees are notified in January and recognized at a
                             special luncheon during the fall reunion weekend.
                               “Duke University Medical Center is truly graced by the men and women who have trained here,” says MAA

  Re-Entry Denied
  When Shahid Mahmood, MD, HS'97-'98, took his family for a month-long visit to
  his native Pakistan in April, it never occurred to him that he wouldn't be back in his
  office seeing patients in May. Mahmood practices family medicine in Roxboro, N.C.,
  in a region recognized by the federal government as being underserved by primary
  care physicians.
     But upon the Mahmood family's return to Washington, D.C.-area Dulles Airport,
  they and their two-year old daughter were denied re-entry into the country—and
  immediately sent back to Pakistan. Unbeknownst to Mahmood, who has been
  authorized to work in the U.S. for nearly ten years, stringent post-9/11 Patriot Act
  regulations required that he notify INS officials of his family's trip before they left.
  After N.C. Senator Elizabeth Dole's office intervened, Mahmood and his family were
  re-admitted to the U.S. on June 11. His staff and patients enthusiastically welcomed
  him back (right).
