I graduated from the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in 2009 and have been working as a doctor since then. I have thoroughly enjoyed this time and I am now keen to complete a fellowship in Cardiology. This field of medicine in the reason I decided to train as a doctor; I have a huge interest in cardiology and, in particular, cardiovascular diseases, and am keen to pursue a lifelong career in the field.
I wish to undertake the Cardiology Fellowship Program as I am enthusiastic to learn from experts in the field as well as to positively contribute to the department. I have always wanted to work on cardiology; my interest in the field is the reason I originally studied medicine, and I am committed to a career in this area. While my interest in cardiology is broad, I am particularly attracted to becoming expert in cardiovascular diseases, including congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease.
I have a strong desire to become adept in a variety procedures, and I am keen to pursue substantial clinical research in the field. Additionally, I am keen to progress to teaching medical students and interns in the field of cardiology. This year, I was Finalist and Presenter of 2 Presentations at the 2012 American College of Physicians National Meeting, in New Orleans. I thoroughly enjoyed presenting and am keen to do more of this as my cardiology career develops.
Though it can be problematic for physicians to apply, I think the most effective medicine is preventative. As cardiologists frequently become life-long fixtures in the lives of their patients, I plan to inform and inspire patients to assume healthier lifestyles. Although an amount of heart disease is genetically governed, there is also a significant environmental influence. This is the familiar Nature vs. Nurture debate, which applies to the field of cardiology just as much as other areas of science. Though certain disorders have a clear genetic foundation, the majority of diseases grow as an outcome of contact between genetics and the environment. Consequently, people can have a degree of control over their cardiac health. So far in my career, I have always tried to assist my patients in understanding the outcomes of their decisions; furthermore, I do not become disheartened when they find changes difficult. I believe encouraging healthy habits is one of the cornerstones of cardiology practice. I consider my link with each patient as a partnership.
In the future, I plan to blend my enthusiasms in research, tutoring medical students, and treating different patients. I am aware that cardiologists often experience extremely high levels of job satisfaction, and I anticipate that the amalgamation of varied intellectual trials and trusting patient relationships will be highly satisfying for me. I am certain that the range of my experiences and skills I have acquired have equipped me for the strains of a career in cardiology.
Cardiology is my true passion and is all I have ever wanted to do. If accepted onto the program, I intend to bring forward my experiences from the last three years in order to hit the ground running. Thank you for considering my application.
