10 years ago, I left my job as a doctor in India and moved to the United States.
It was a good decision.
My husband was in a lot of pain and I was happy with his job.
Now, he works as a social worker and has no choice but to stay home with his young daughter.
In India, I started with a residency program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, then I went to Northwestern University, and I studied at Columbia University, so that’s how I got my medical degree.
Today, I’m in my third year as a nurse practitioner, and it’s a wonderful experience.
In India, where I got a bachelor’s degree in pharmacology, I was able to practice in different parts of the country.
I did my first internship in Mumbai, which is in the eastern part of the state, where we do research on the efficacy of the drug ketamine.
It’s used in mental health, as a treatment for depression.
It can help in people who are suffering from depression.
Then I worked in an area that’s a bit more rural, in Karnataka, in southern India.
So I went from one to the other.
Now I’m practicing in the United Kingdom and in California.
There are so many more options in India.
It is an incredible country, with amazing opportunities.
When I came to America, I met my wife, my son and daughter in the hospital and realized that it is an extremely important time for us to be together.
As a medical career path, I decided to go into the pediatric specialty.
That was a dream for me.
I love teaching and research, so I wanted to work in that area.
It took a few years, but I finally found my dream job in a pediatric specialty at Children’s.
I also became very interested in medical technology.
I started working with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is a big institution in the US.
I became very involved in clinical trials, which are the big step that I took to get my doctorate.
My goal was to help develop vaccines, treatments and drugs that could help people.
My wife and I were so grateful to have this opportunity and to have a career that we loved.
I have a great family, my kids are very happy, and the community has supported me throughout all of this.
What did you do when you got the job?
I got a phone call from a person who had a PhD in my field.
I was really happy.
How did you find that doctorate?
When the fellowship was approved, I got the phone call and the letter.
I went straight to my department and applied.
My first appointment was with a doctor from Johns Hopkins University.
He was extremely enthusiastic, and he introduced me to the fellowship.
I am still a student at Johns Hopkins.
We have a very strong collaboration.
Who was the first doctor you interviewed?
My first appointment with Dr. B.S. Singh was at a private clinic in San Francisco.
We met at the clinic and I explained what I had been doing for the last six years in the pediatric and emergency medicine fields.
I had completed my doctorates in both of them.
He came up to me and said, “Are you a pediatrician?”
I was very nervous and asked him to give me some details.
He told me that I was the only one in the country who had completed his doctorates, and that I would be the one to do the internship.
Why did you decide to go to Johns Hopkins?
As I had already completed my PhD in the fields of psychology and neuroscience, I thought that it was a great opportunity.
I found that they were very patient and professional, and they were willing to work with me on a small scale.
The program was very flexible.
There was one week for you to go from India to California, and then there was another week for a month.
Was it a good opportunity for you?
Yes, I loved it.
I learned a lot about what I was working on and what I could do.
I got to see how my skills could be used for a clinical trial, and also how to be an advocate for a patient.
You worked in different hospitals for about six months.
At Johns Hopkins, you worked in the neonatal intensive care unit, in which we treat about a thousand babies a day.
That’s the type of work you do, so it’s something I am very passionate about.
I have been working with patients with severe depression for many years, and at the same time, I am also working with children with autism.
Did you have any problems with getting the job in India?
The one thing that was really important was that we were allowed to do an internship, which was a very big decision for me and for my family.
I worked with a team of six.
There were two nurses and two
