Pathology is the most intellectually exciting and interesting part of medicine because it gives you the opportunity to diagnose diseases at the most fundamental level while correlating your findings with the patient's clinical features and serving as a consultant to other clinicians. As the saying goes, the pathologist is your doctor's doctor. I am currently going to pursue fellowships in surgical pathology, hematopathology and dermatopathology. In my spare time, I write poetry and meditative/contemplative essays, write and record songs, read all kinds of books, watch movies (sci-fi especially), travel, spend time with friends and family, and serving in church.
