Dr. Abraham completed his medical school training at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2004, his Residecy in 2007 at University of Minnesota School of Medicine and his Fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in 2011. Dr. Abraham’s primary clinical interests in Gastroenterology revolve around the complex care dynamics in people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and Celiac Disease. He has provided this specialized expertise from 2011-2019 at the University of Minnesota and at the University of Michigan starting in 2020. In recognition of his dedication to the care of adults living with gastrointestinal manifestations of Cystic Fibrosis, Dr. Abraham was awarded the DIGEST Career Development Grant by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 2014. He participates in the multidisciplinary training of CF care providers in the United States, and internationally with the CF community, through speaking engagements and clinical teaching. This work led to his invitation to join the Teaching Faculty for the CFF’s DIGEST Grant Training Program in 2019.
It is an important part of Dr. Abraham’s practice to pay thoughtful attention to the medical, emotional, and psychosocial aspects of each person’s care – as he often says to trainees working with him, “It is important to treat the whole person, not just parts of them.” He takes pride in developing ongoing partnerships with patients and their loved ones as they work through each of these important aspects together. This empathetic approach to his work with Minnesotans has resulted in local recognition by Minneapolis - St. Paul Magazine as one of their “Top Doctors, Rising Stars” since 2016. Dr. Abraham was also recognized for his mentoring efforts with the Outstanding Advising & Mentoring Award by the University of Minnesota Professional Student Government in 2017.
