Student Experience

Upon completion of my first year in college, I was keen to pursue a summer study that further provided me exposure to the daily aspects of the medical profession. As I choose to further narrow down my areas of focus from a study perspective, it was important for me to get an early exposure into the different shades of medical profession. I was lucky to be offered the opportunity at Kauvery to be a part of 2015’s summer study under the guidance of some of the best minds in the profession. My experience at Kauvery was a comprehensive one. Be it a field of expertise, a type of ailment, or a set of internal processes, I was fortunate enough to be able to interact with multiple departments and experts within the hospital. Under the guided supervision of the experts, I gained valuable insight and experience that I will cherish beyond my professional needs. Though I am unsure about the specific type of medical professional I will be, I will always remember this as the environment in which I was first able to sink my teeth in. Hopefully, I return here in future to contribute to the professional environment here at Kauvery Hospital. I learned so much from all the physicians and surgeons about what it truly means to be a medical professional. To see, to understand, and to help. I will keep this and all that I have learned in mind as I move forward with my future aspirations. Thank you for a wonderful summer of learning.
