Medicine - Internal Medicine

Residency

India

This clinical rotation working with in an internal medicine clinic in India will grant me the unique hands-on experience of working with patients afflicted with tropical diseases (especially the interplay between HIV, TB, malaria, and malnutrition) that are not common to the US setting.   Additionally, I will also see chronic health issues we see in the US, but in a limited medical resource setting, something I've never been exposed to in the past. This type of background in the tropical disease landscape is necessary to be a competent practitioner in the global health field.  The 3.5 weeks I propose to spend in India will be unforgettable from the clinical rotation experience alone.  However, I will also be exposed to the utilization of ayurvedic medicine in combination with traditional medicine approach.  This will show me new techniques that I may be able to bring into my practice in the United States, from yoga to meditation.  Moreover, it will teach me how to incorporate a local culture into the treatment of patients in order to better address their individual needs.  This will enable me to become a more accepting and effective practitioner, whether in the US or abroad.
