Plans And Letter To Attend Medical School

898 words - 4 pages

It is the fall of 1998, I still remember that year vividly. I went to second grade in a public school close by my home in India where the teachers were unsympathetic and punitive. One hot summer day, the teacher called ‘Mathivadana’... wanting me to answer a math question because I could not give the correct answer she made me stand outside in hundred degree burning sunshine. It was just a few minutes before this new feeling took over - dry and foggy eyes, head twisting and turning and everything fuzzy.

Ruling out other career paths has only paved my decision in becoming a medical doctor….doctor­ to narrow down my career that I will love for the next forty years of my life.
For the past year, I have done activities to assure myself that the medical doctor is my career choice. This includes working and shadowing a professional medical doctor; the experience was very helpful and educational because I was able to see what the job is really about. I got an opportunity to work with Dr. Jamandas, a cardiologist who welcomed me with open arms when I had told him about my future plans during the interview process for the non-profit Generation OM scholarship before joining UCF. On the first day of shadowing with Dr. Jamandas, I loved how he was very fluent, honest, informative, very kind, jovial and extremely understanding with his patients which...
