Several visits to hospitals and other places where the sick received treatment proved beyond doubt that the education and training the men and women who ran medical institutions received, had to be of the highest, rigorous standard.
Over the years, my interest and aptitude to choose medicine as a career increased. There were times when I used to feel a bit scared at the prospect of operating on patients. But looking at the advances in technology and the great strides made in the way complex and difficult cases are handled, I am encouraged to do whatever necessary to become a physician.
The immediate reason for my desire to become a physician is my grandmother who had suffered a broken hip which required hip replacement surgery, a fractured shoulder which restricted her mobility, and moreover, she is a diabetic patient. Observing her condition and the way the doctors attending her helped to ease her discomfort further strengthened my resolve to take up medicine as a profession.
I have the highest regard and opinion of the doctors who treat my grandmother. Their treatment, dedication and care are wonderful examples for youngsters to give their best for those who need the healing touch, professionally and personally. One of my best role model in the field is Florence Nightingale.
