RESIDENCY PERSONAL STATEMENT (INTERNAL MEDICINE)
The idea of treating people has charmed me since childhood. Seeing
my grandfather, a doctor in India, inspired me to cure ailing patients.
So, in high school, although I enjoyed mathematics, literature, physics
and chemistry, my natural inclination was to take biology as my elective
and plan for medical school. I realized my first goal when joined Medical
College, the premiere institution in Eastern India. My interest towards
Internal Medicine started growing during the early years in medical
school. In my first year of med school, I took the opportunity to begin
reading Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine. The vastness
yet the underlying simplicity of the subject enthralled me. I could
not wait for the 3rd year medicine wards to begin. I interacted with
residents and seniors who were on the wards. What I found compelling
was how they discussed a patient in entirety starting from diagnosis
and treatment of the illness to offering support and counseling.
