My Passion for Healthcare

There is a picture that I drew when I was in first grade of a doctor. It now hangs on my wall at home. It is a stereotypical picture of a physician with a head mirror and stethoscope. My mother framed it and gave it to me during my first year in medical school. She reminded me of what I wanted to be since I was a little boy. However, when I was a young adult I thought that I would be a scientist and a teacher. After doing research and teaching for years, I decided that I wanted to help people by combining teaching, science and human interaction. Thus, I became a doctor.
