Becoming a doctor and serving people is my childhood dream. I chose Texila American Opportunity (TAU) to pursue my medical degree in Guyana, an ethnic country in South America. When I decided to study medicine abroad, I had no idea how to adapt to entirely new people, cultures, and lifestyles. However, TAU and Guyana made my life easier and opened new opportunities to explore the medical field.
Being an international student in Guyana, learning a different culture, language, way of life, etc. was truly a great experience. It has changed the way I view the world and how I live my life today.
While studying Doctor of Medicine and Associates in Natural Sciences, my institution exposed me to an entirely new world. I am grateful to TAU for giving me such a wonderful opportunity and a seamless experience to study abroad and for introducing me to the world of medicine as a doctor.
I was able to learn about the healthcare system and practice in Guyana, which is very rich in natural wealth and culture. At the same time, the country needs enthusiastic doctors to bring a whole new revolution to the healthcare system.TAU is playing a crucial role in introducing fully qualified doctors like me every year to contribute to the healthcare industry. My time in Guyana pursuing medical education solidified my desire to work in the healthcare industry and serve people endlessly.
Being immersed in a different culture and the academic system was really a revelation. It had helped me thrive in something out of my comfort zone and given me an incredible opportunity for personal growth.
Working on several research projects and getting hands-on experience in standard patient care was a memorable learning experience. Above all, it had given me great pleasure and pride when I completed my medical degree and graduated as a doctor. I become someone that I had been dreaming of for long years. TAU had given me the knowledge, skills, and the confidence to move on and pursue a Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency.
I am forever grateful to all TAU, my faculty members, and all the doctors who have contributed tremendously and are tirelessly working with me to help me reach what I am now.
Thanks to the wonderful population of Guyana and Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, and my heartfelt special thanks to TAU, without which this wouldn’t have been possible.
