    Infectious Diseases as My Future Career:


   Choosing a subspecialty is the most important career decision a medical resident must
    make. It is a difficult decision—one that has become increasingly complex over time.
    Medicine is evolving rapidly, giving rise to a growing number of specialties and
    subspecialties

   Why I selected Infectious Diseases as my future career: well while completing my
    fellowship training in Internal Medicine, very honestly admitting I always found myself
    very weak in treating infections disease patients. Microorganism and antibiotics
    always made me puzzled and I faced difficulties to treat them. I realized that being
    infection diseases which were almost treatable and curable but we couldn’t, succeeded
    and faced failure in the face of mortality and morbidities. I realized and accepted that
    Infections should and best treated by specialists in Infectious Diseases. While in
    training I meet Infectious Diseases specialist Dr Shehla Baqi, at that time she recently
    joined ID Consultant in Civil Hospital Karachi as Associate Professor. Dr Shehla Baqi
    did her Diplomat American Boards in Internal Medicine, in Adult Infectious Diseases
    and Paediatrics’ Infectious Diseases from UCLA. Her real approach for complicated
    infectious diseases patient established hope inside me.

   Later on I decided to make weakness as my strength and my future career. I joined Dr
    Shehla Baqi as Senior Registrar in Infectious diseases department at Sindh Institute of
    Urology and Transplantation and later on started my 2nd Fellowship in Infectious
    Diseases.

   Infectious disease experts focus on the interface between humans and the microbial
    world and the associated consequences of infection. Infectious diseases are the third
    leading cause of death in the United States—170,000 each year—a figure that has
    nearly doubled since the early 1980s. Globally, infectious diseases rank as the second
    leading cause of death, over half of which are children under the age of 5. Existing and
    emerging diseases present a continuous threat to society.

   ID specialists have eradicated smallpox worldwide, led efforts to eliminate polio, and
    developed vaccines that have enabled dramatic reductions in diseases such as hepatitis
    B and varicella. ID specialists are on the leading edge of some of the hottest topics in
    medicine today—from treatment for HIV/AIDS patients, to the growing threat posed
    by antibiotic resistance, to concerns about the appropriate evaluation and response to
    threats of bioterrorism. They are also leading efforts to strengthen and improve U.S.
    and global preparedness against pandemic influenza, and they have spearheaded the
    response to epidemics such as West Nile encephalitis, mad cow disease, and severe
    acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

   I am striving my best and enjoying Infectious Diseases and desperate to complete my
    2nd fellowship in Adult Infectious Diseases and start my final destination for new
    emerging subspecialty of Infectious Diseases which is Transplant Infectious Diseases.
Personal Attributes:
 As a potential medical student of the Internal Medicine, I will strive to be a tremendous asset
 to The field of Infectious Diseases and Internal Medicine anywhere in the world and NHS of
 United Kingdom’s by devoting all my time and life to becoming an excellent physician. I
 believe that I am obligated to use my talents in a constructive manner, in a manner that
 benefits society. The medical career gives me the unique opportunity to express my many
 talents while benefiting human life.

 B. Berston M.D. once said: “... a funny thing happens to medical students on their way to
 becoming physicians: they forget how to hold a conversation.”

 I believe that my ability to communicate makes me well suited to pursue a medical career.
 While I possess the strong science background necessary for success in the profession, I also
 consider myself a “people” person. As a waiter and bartender, I dramatically improved and
 expanded my communication skills since I was constantly meeting new people and discussing
 different topics. Because people constantly disclosed their personal issues to me as a
 bartender, I learned to become not only a good conversationalist, but also an excellent
 listener.
 In medical school of Internal Medicine, I also plan to pursue side work educating students and
 serving as a resource to the public. One of my most rewarding experiences has been tutoring
 to my junior doctors in my ward and hospital. Always able to develop a good rapport with
 students, I believe I possess a talent for teaching others in a friendly manner and in a manner
 that helps them to grasp difficult concepts easily. As part of my medical career, I will aim to
 continue teaching and to provide information to the public on the prevention and treatment
 of ailments and diseases.
 Undoubtedly my cultural diversity will be a great contribution to the field of Infectious
 Diseases and Internal Medicine anywhere in the world & NHS of United Kingdom’s. Being
 raised in a medical family in Pakistan, visiting United Kingdom for my MRCP exams, and now
 living in the in Pakistan, I have experienced the similarities and differences among many
 diverse cultural groups and geographical areas. This allowed me to relate to different types of
 people by understanding their ways and beliefs, a quality that will help me work well with
 other medical students and help me serve my patients better in the future.
 Highly motivated to succeed, I dramatically improved my grades following a time of confusion
 and immaturity in 2003 and 2004, which was brought on by family illness and turmoil. Once I
 realized what goal I wanted to pursue in life, I worked hard to succeed, and my remaining five
 years of medical jobs are truly indicative of my intellectual capacity and motivation for
 success. My strength as a candidate to field of Infectious Diseases and Internal Medicine
 anywhere in the world & NHS of United Kingdom’s lies mostly in the objectives that I plan to
 fulfill upon becoming a best physician. They are, in no particular order of importance, as
 follows:

 1) To provide excellence in comprehensive care by using my acquired skills as both a
 competent professional and also as a compassionate human being.
 2) To cultivate my leadership role both in the community of my practice and in the nation to
 formulate and maintain health care principles and advancements.
 3) To employ the latest knowledge and techniques in detection and prevention of disease, and
 the restoration of health
 4) To develop and employ methods to take care of an aging population.
 5) To show reverence for human beings by giving excellent care to all
 6) To forever expand my knowledge through experience, continuing education courses, and
 research.
 I have been diligent in my pursuit of internal medicine as a career because I am convinced
 that medicine offers me the opportunity to live a fulfilling, rewarding life dedicated to helping
 others. I will enter medicine eager to learn and thirsting for the knowledge to help my fellow
 human beings. Attending NHS of United Kingdom’s would be one of the greatest rewards for
 my motivation and persistence for success.
 I am focussed with good time keeping and work well within a multi-disciplinary team environment
 Confident in my work but aware of my limitations and won’t hesitate to seek advice from seniors
 when necessary
 I also believe in constant learning to develop professionally and personally in order to meet
 expectations of patients and my profession

 I swear to uphold and exceed all that is expected of a future physician while promoting the
 progress of medicine and humanity

Extra-Curricular Activities:

Career Plans:
To undertake Specialist Training in INFECTIOUS DISEASES and obtain Membership of the
Royal College of Physicians (MRCP), then to undertake Sub Speciality Examination in
Infectious Diseases from Royal Colleges of Physicians UK and 2nd Fellowship in Infectious
Diseases from College of Physician & Surgeon Pakistan (FCPS) and then aiming towards a
career in Infectious Diseases. I aim to have continued involvement in clinical, academic and
later research commitments, in my chosen field of medicine.
I am very well aware of the fact that this particular chosen field, is quite competitive and
difficult to pursue, but I am also aware of my resilient and hard working character, which I
believe will enable me to succeed and be a valuable asset to the profession, and the clinical
team I work with. I am prepared for the challenges to come; I welcome the joys of my career in
Medicine as it continues to evolve. I look forward for the next phase of training with a lot of
enthusiasm, excitement and an extreme sense of commitment. I hope to be given an
opportunity to prove my mettle.
