Fellowship Internal Medicine & Nephrology

I am a physician from India who wants to give his all to a residency program in America. I currently live in Ohio but I am ready to relocate anywhere in the country. I am especially looking forward to becoming fully immersed in research in the area of Nephrology, the specialty that I have focused on to pursue as my life’s work.

 In addition to medical school in India, I have gained relevant experience in several areas by working as a volunteer in projects targeting Tuberculosis and AIDS as well as Polio prevention programs. I have also had extensive experience working with a Primary Health Care Center. I now feel confident that I am in a position to excel in a residency program, especially as a result of my great enthusiasm and dedication to service.

 Growing up in India, during my childhood, I came across many people dying from a broad variety of illnesses and this made an enormous impression on me, especially since I was a very serious and sensitive child. As I got older, I came to understand that most of this would be preventable, and that these individual died as a result of a lack of medical care. It was my strong desire to help these people that resulted in my choosing the medical profession as my career.

 My father served for many years as a paramedical officer; as I was growing up, his vision also helped to inspire me to work hard so that I would be accepted to an excellent medical school. Internal Medicine is what most excited me in medical school and it is in this area that I want to excel. For some time now, I have also been reading virtually all of the current literature on advancement of our field in the area of nephrology, understanding and treating the entire disease process.

 Renal failure is very common in India and I have seen many people who were dying from it over the years. This would not have happened if they had of had adequate treatment. I focused on this area of medical research early on because I recognized this great need back in India. Someday, I hope to be able to return to India and use what I have learned here in the United States to help make treatment programs more effective despite the limited resources that we have at our disposal.

 I have graduated among the top 5% of my class since my childhood. During my entire education, I was always a very good team player and lead many teams in voluntary work as well as sports. My experience working at a primary care center for two years as a medical officer helped to greatly strengthen my skills, learning how to make the most of all available resources to meet our paramedical responsibilities. I keenly look forward to giving all of my energy and concentration to the practice of Internal Medicine here in the USA and I hope to have many decades to work hard at research in this area as well as practice. I crave long hours and full immersion in this area and I look forward to meeting your team and giving my all to the practice of Nephrology in your esteemed institution.

 Thank you for considering my application to your program.
