What drew me to Internal Medicine: The diversity of pathology that I can see as an internist, the process of reaching a diagnosis, and formulating a comprehensive patient-centric management plan. Internal Medicine also offers an opportunity to practice in a diversity of settings, from acute in-patient medicine to out-patient medicine where I get to develop a long-term relationship with my patients and help them improve their quality of life. This diversity of pathology, settings, and patients provides an ideal environment for life-long learning.
