The power of insight into the various aspects
of life has been bestowed by the Creator on human being alone. It is this
reasoning faculty, this mental perception which sets us above all other
creations. This is the quality that makes us “The roof and Crown of things
“in the words of Tennyson’s Lotus-Eaters.
From the very first day of acquiring
conscientiousness, what I thought of was regarding acquisition of knowledge.
One thing I fancied about knowledge was the field of knowledge which gave me
the greatest level of satiety while acquiring it. This was how my interest
for life sciences originated. Moving on with my education years, my
inclination towards life sciences refined itself to health sciences and
finally towards clinical medicine.
Passing through school and high school with
flying colors, I finally ended up getting admission in a renowned medical
school of Pakistan. At Allama Iqbal Medical College, I found the pre-clinical
years very fascinating, as my thirst for knowledge about life sciences got

The satisfaction I achieved while rotating through Internal Medicine wards
was the guiding force attracting me towards this discipline of clinical
knowledge.
Simultaneously, I started planning my career in clinical medicine and
concluded that Internal Medicine is the field that interests me the most.
During my clinical rotations, apart from the clinical knowledge I was
receiving, I learnt a lot. My communication skills were thoroughly sharpened
as a result of in-depth interaction with a diverse variety of patients, their
attendants, my clinical instructors and fellows. I learnt the art of breaking
bad news and handling emotions associated with ailment and suffering. Another
thing I learnt was working under stress and handling emergency situations.
My interest for Internal Medicine became the most obvious while working as a
trainee physician in Internal Medicine in the same hospital where I had
undertaken my undergraduate medical training. This was the time when I learnt
