RESIDENCY PERSONAL STATEMENT (RADIOLOGY)
From an early age, I was exposed to medicine through my father, a
radiologist, and as I grew, the influence of his career naturally and
inevitably tailored my interest. It has been my own desire, however,
that has compelled me to pursue a career in medicine. The summer after
my sophomore year in high school, my family took a trip to our native
town in India. For two months, I volunteered at the Charity Foundation
in India, and the experiences I had there resonated deeply in me, changing
my perspectives forever. More than my duties, the simple daily exposure
transformed me permanently. These experiences with the Charity Organization
and Mother Teresa herself showed me medicine in a light I might not
have seen back home in Texas or elsewhere, gave me a new understanding
to a physician’s role in society, and set forth my pursuit for
a career in medicine.
