"I think medical school education in recent times is so much better than what it used to be, with the opportunities to gain clinical exposure, interact with patients, practice skills with patients and even the curriculum being regularly scrutinized and updated."

“I appeared for NEET in 2017, 2018 and 2019 - third times a charm, I guess. The drop years I took were most definitely challenging but also taught me a lot. As a child, I had taken a keen interest in medicine after my father underwent surgery. My perseverance to pursue my passion played as a strength as I got admitted to a medical school in 2019.

I settled into my medical school in Bihar pretty easily as being an army kid I had constantly moved all my life. My first year of medical school I didn’t interact much with my peers and by the time second year came around things took a turn for the better. I was having a good time and I know I will continue to do so.

I think medical school education in recent times is so much better than what it used to be, with the opportunities to gain clinical exposure, interact with patients, practice skills with patients and even the curriculum being regularly scrutinized and updated. I think personally interacting with patients face to face has helped me understand that not only do I need to be a good doctor but a better communicator, I need to be able to communicate with patients who present with a language barrier or patients with disabilities. Moreover, I have to treat them and care for them while upholding their religious beliefs, their opinions and values and their lifestyle. I’m surely learning more each day.

I hope to graduate being the best version of me that I can be while upholding the values my parents have inculcated in me. I wish to honour my army background by myself pursuing to be a army medic.
