“The only way to do great work is to love what you do” is my favorite quote coined by Steve Jobs.
I graduated from my Medical School with Honors in ENT and Distinction in Pediatrics and Biochemistry. This motivated me to work harder and dream for something big. I have organized and participated in various cultural events and held the position of head girl in medical school. This taught me the value of time, teamwork, dedication, hard work, consistency and discipline. I believe these qualities will help to build a long-lasting relationships with patients and my colleagues. My passion for medicine blossomed from my curiosity to understand the wonderful creation of the human body and its complexity.During my third year Internal Medicine rotations, I was faced with a challenging clinical presentation of a case of Diabetic Nephropathy.
He was a senior citizen from a rural village in India. Since there were no medical facilities nearby he was not compliant with his treatment. With a desire to help him I started analyzing his history and realized his sufferings and needs which was ingrained in my mind.
I selected the study on Diabetes Mellitus which was sponsored by ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research). Contributing a little through my clinical research gave me the satisfaction of taking the first step. After graduation, I started working as a Duty Doctor in Bethesda Nursing home in India, where I met people from all walks of life. Earning trust of patients and their families is the most important and satisfying part of being a physician. My passion in the field of Internal Medicine grew and the perseverance to have a strong foundation helps me to pursue new opportunities in this field. Coming from a place with less technology and medical advancements I understand that this field could offer more things to explore if I get an opportunity to work with my contemporaries in advanced countries. Practicing evidence based medicine at an institution with technological advancements and fantastic educational opportunities while living among people from various ethnic groups is everything I could ask for.
Internal Medicine is a well?rounded specialty demanding multiple roles with a high level of responsibility. I am eager to take on the challenge and hope to be an effective resource for my patients by providing compassionate care. I want to be a well?rounded physician before mastering a particular sub?specialty. With my burning desire to achieve new heights in the field of medicine I would one day be a renouned medical professional, researcher, teacher and most important a compassionate humane. I would like to dedicate my knowledge attained, experienced and expertise gained for serving the underpriviledge in the society. Relieving the pain and sufferings of mankind is the greatest service to God.
