On Specialty
“I first became fascinated by the field of infectious diseases when I volunteered for 6 months at a hospital in a remote part of Kenya. There, I witnessed firsthand the tremendous impact of infectious diseases like malaria and tuberculosis on much of the world’s population.
I also experienced the joy of treating a comatose child for malaria and twelve hours later pushing her on the swings in the playground. Infectious disease treatments in first world settings do not always yield such dramatic recoveries, but nevertheless it is an extremely satisfying field, combining the challenges of diagnosis with the benefits of many effective treatments.”
