Surgical Pathology Fellowship, Indian Woman


A woman and a doctor from India, I have been in the USA since 2009, learning everything that I can about the practice of medicine, especially concerning my central passion in life, Surgical Pathology. In particular, I strive to become proficient in examining a broad range of surgical specimens, ranging from small biopsies to extended radical procedures, including both routine and unusual neoplastic and non-neoplastic models. In addition to the extensive experience that I am acquiring in this area, primarily as a result of my current residency training at the University of Minnesota, I would like to hone my surgical pathology skills by getting further training at your renowned fellowship program in Surgical Pathology.

I especially enjoy the way that Surgical Pathology serves virtually every other specialty of medicine, thereby helping me stay well-informed about other clinical things like Gynecology, Surgery, Dermatology, and many more. I firmly believe that pathologists must be an integral part of the healthcare team. During my residency training, I have come to appreciate more fully the critical importance of the clinical-pathological correlation, for pathologists to make their most significant contributions as part of the broader "health care team." What I find most challenging at this stage in my training is interacting with surgeons during operating room consultations for frozen sections. I want to gain as much confidence as possible in this area, in particular, to play this critical role as a pathologist.

Following my residency training in India, I started working as a Pathologist in a County hospital. Keeping abreast of the medical advances during this tenure, I understood better how so many new approaches are being employed in the USA. I increasingly longed to study and practice medicine in the USA, to become part of that cutting-edge tradition of excellence. And my dream has come true with my current training at the University of XXXX as a result of the distinction not only of the university facility, state-of-the-art ancillary laboratories, and the experienced faculty, but also the opportunity to rotate at great university-affiliated, community hospitals, notably XXXX County Medical Center and XXXX Hospital.

My short-term goals are to learn new developments in diagnostic & prognostic studies that might impact on patient care & prognosis, improve my ability to do independent sign-outs under the guidance of your experts, and to develop my supervisory and management skills further. In the long term, I am looking forward to working in a community hospital where a well-rounded Pathologist trained in Surgical Pathology is very much needed. And I am confident that the fellowship training at University of XXXX will prepare me to reach these goals.

Being selected for a fellowship position with your distinguished program at the University of XXXX will enable me to fulfill my central professional dreams and visions to the fullest extent possible. I thank you for considering my application.
