Further Information: 

I am a doctor from Nepal with a keen interest in both clinical and research medicine. After completing my MBBS degree from the Nepalese Army Institute of Health Sciences in 2018, I have been working in various health settings and seeing patients from diverse backgrounds. This has been highly rewarding and at few times quite challenging. These experiences solidified my decision of building a strong academic background to pursue my career in Internal Medicine. The programme allows me not only to build on the current abilities that  I acquired from my medical school but also to gain new skills to transition into becoming a better clinician.

This programme provides doctors like me in early careers a great flexible opportunity to achieve necessary grounding in the discipline of Internal Medicine and keep myself up to date with current best practices alongside my full-time clinical work. I have completed the first and second parts of the MRCP examination. As the programme complements the MRCP curriculum, it will also be a stepping stone in attaining my full MRCP in near future.

I am sure the concepts and contents of the programme will provide me more confidence in dealing with complex clinical scenarios and better clinical decision making which will, in turn, be reflected in the quality of care to my patient. I feel incredibly grateful and honoured to be awarded the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh scholarship for the MSc Internal Medicine with the University of Edinburgh.
