Health Information In Our Own Words: "A Truly 'Amazing' Experience"

Twin Rush University graduates teamed up to compete in reality TV race.

Twins Indries Abdur-Rahman, MD, and Jamil Abdur-Rahman, MD, truly are a dynamic duo. The brothers, who attended Rush Medical College together and later started their own ob/gyn practice, recently teamed up to compete on one of America's most popular — and grueling — reality shows: "TheAmazing Race." Although they were eliminated in a show that aired in late February, they had the experience of a lifetime. In an exclusive interview on the Rush News Blog, Indries and Jamil talked about preparing for the race and how their "unspoken twin bond" helped them during competition. The following is an excerpt from the story:

Idries Abdur-Rahman, MD, has been a fan of the reality game show " The Amazing Race" since its first season in 2001. His twin brother, Jamil Abdur-Rahman, MD, didn’t really get hooked until the past few seasons.

And now, the 36-year-old brothers, both ob/gyn physicians, will have a chance to get some fans of their own. Idries and Jamil are a team on "The Amazing Race’s" 22nd season, which pits 12 teams of pairs against each other, each racing around the world for the chance to win $1 million. The season starts airing this Sunday, Feb. 17, on CBS.

They work together well — and often. Idries and Jamil started their own ob/gyn practice, Women's Healthcare Partners of Illinois , in 2006, and the twins, who grew up in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, went to college together at the University of Illinois at Chicago, attended medical school at Rush and even got married the same year ...
