Professional Statement


My passion towards medicine started very early in my undergraduate school when I witnessed the sufferings of one of my close family members who had rheumatoid arthritis. I always wished I could alleviate her sufferings. During my residency training I was fortunate to work with a rheumatologist who was not only a great clinician but also a very kind human being. This led to my deep passion for rheumatology. Rheumatology is fascinating due to the fact that it could affect any organs in our body. It allows me to think of a patient as a whole rather than one particular organ. I strongly believe in patient empowerment, where the patient should play an active role in their care and every decision making process. Hence patient education should be a key aspect of clinical practice. That’s one of the key reasons why I am involved in Doctorpedia.
