- Moto: I became a doctor because my motto was to make a difference in people’s lives. And I believe that being a thoracic surgeon, or transplant surgeon, will help me accomplish that goal.
- Most Memorable Moment: one of the most memorable moments was with one of the young patients who had a heart attack and he was in critical condition. However, I handled the situation and gave him all the necessary first aid to save his life and later on handed it over to a senior consultant. And the most unforgettable thing was when a senior consultant called me and told me, in recognition of my quick response, that if I hadn’t handled the patient the way he was handled, the patient would have died. So, it was the most memorable moment for me, the senior consultant called me and appreciated and saved someone’s life.
- Most Challenging Moment: The most challenging moment I faced was during my residency. I was on call at the hospital, and I suddenly heard the cries and shouting of some of the attendants of one of the patients who died in a car accident. Out of frustration, they started attacking doctors. I still remember that it took a lot of our efforts to control the situation.
