Further Information: 

I was born and grew up in Chittagong, which is a large port city on the south-eastern coast of Bangladesh. I completed my MBBS 5-year bachelor degree programme in Medicine and Surgery from the Sylhet M.A.G. Osmani Medical College, Bangladesh with First Class Honours, followed by a one year clinical attachment as an intern doctor. During my clinical duties as well as MBBS study period, I found the topics under medicine very interesting and wide for serving the mass population. I am very active in pursuing a long and strong evidence-based professional profile for medical and clinical service. I recently completed a specialized post-graduate course in Diabetes Care and Management from Glasgow Caledonian University with Distinction and was awarded with GCU Commonwealth Scholarship. I also successfully passed the UK GMC's Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test to practise medicine in the UK.

I am very glad that I got the opportunity to pursue an MSc in Internal Medicine under the joint collaboration of two most world leading institutions like University of Edinburgh and Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE). I am truly honoured and grateful to the RCPE for considering me to award the scholarship, which is a great support to me to further progress with my academic career and ambition. I think this MSc course will enhance my technical knowledge and skills in various aspects of professional development, and it will eventually help me towards preparing for the UK Royal College of Physicians membership examination.

I am also active in various social voluntary and extracurricular activities since my school days, which enables me to work for the unprivileged population in terms of managing better health and a healthy environment. For example, I volunteered for activities under Red Crescent Society Bangladesh, Macmillan Cancer Support Service, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Debating Society/Club and Academic Cultural Programmes. I received multiple awards as Best Debater and Best Instant Speaker at regional and national level in Bangladesh.
