Further Information: 

I was born in Bangladesh but moved to America at a young age where I enjoyed my childhood and began my primary education in Brooklyn, New York. I have lived and grown up in London since I first moved to the UK in 2003. I attended secondary school in North London and obtained my A levels at The Latymer School. During my A levels, I was determined to study Medicine at university. I am a recent graduate from King’s College London where I was fortunate to be awarded Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) on a 5 year programme. During my studies, I took a year out to do a BSc on Imaging Sciences in which I obtained a First Class Honours degree. University was an amazing experience which helped shape me into the man I am today but it has also acted as a platform to help me realise what motivates me and where my passions lie. I have currently started my Foundation Programme as an FY1 doctor in the Wessex Deanery and my career interests include Cardiology, General Practice, Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. Cardiology is a field that I have been extremely interested in since my first clinical placement in 2015, however it was on my elective period in Bangladesh where I really found my passion for it. The consultants were a great inspiration of what a true Internal Medicine Consultant can achieve and that led me to be motivated to strive for the same. 

The joint University of Edinburgh and Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh MSc in Internal Medicine is very unique in the sense that it will allow me to continue my education whilst working as a junior doctor in the opposite end of the UK. To study at either of these world-renowned institutes is a remarkable achievement and privilege but to have been awarded this scholarship is a true honour. Having looked at the course structure, I believe the flexibility of the course would be perfectly suited alongside full-time clinical work as an FY1 because the two will supplement each other. This MSc will allow me to adequately prepare and develop such that I can take the MRCP towards the end of my FY1 year. The knowledge and skills that I will be taught will help aid my progression as a clinician and impact on the lives of the patients and staff I will work with on a daily basis.
