How I fell in love with cardiovascular medecine:

When I was growing up, I always wanted to become a physician to help those suffering from medical diseases. Both of my parents were diagnosed with cardiac conditions at an early stage and required hospitalizations and different cardiac procedures in the past. The way cardiology helps to save people's lives fascinated me, especially with the emerging devices and treatments in the field of heart failure and cardiac transplantation.
