Why I Chose Medicine
I had always known I wanted to go into medicine ever since I was a child. Upon maturing, my desire become more realistic and wanting to understand how and why the body functions. I wanted to use this information to help improve the lives of everyone around me. I chose podiatry specifically because I enjoy the diversity of the field. The ability to perform routine care, planned surgical procedures and treat acute trauma as well as the option to focus on sports medicine, pediatric or biomechanics etc. allows for developing a practice of my own choosing. I enjoy the ability to relieve a patient’s pain sometimes with the simplest of procedures and seeing their smiles as they walk out.
