RESIDENCY PERSONAL STATEMENT
Diagnosis of disease has always been my passion. It is what attracted
me to a career in medicine. For me there has been nothing more exciting
than the challenge involved in unraveling the mysteries of the human
body. I was introduced to Pathology in the second year of my medical
school and had also begun my clinical rotations in Internal Medicine
and Surgery. These rotations provided great opportunity to be involved
in clinico-pathological correlation. My job as a medical student began
as carrying histopathology samples to the Pathology department and
bring back reports. The Pathology resident that helped me with this
was very enthusiastic and always made it a point to show me the interesting
slides. Up until then histopathology slides had been a jumble of pink
and blue colors for me. As I saw more and more slides all these colors
started making sense. Pieces of a jigsaw puzzle started falling together
to reveal the larger picture. During these clinical rotations I realized
the tremendous impact these tiny sections on pieces of glass have on
the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
