I am a 3rd year medical student at St. George's University located in the U.S., Grenada and the UK seeking C$198,000 from a collective of private individuals and organizations to fund the costs to complete my medical degree and under take a specialization in family medicine.
This fall I will be taking my first medical board exam then begin clinical training at a hospital in the U.S. or UK before returning to Canada to do electives in Family Medicine to complete my degree. My desire is to return to my home country of Canada and work as a family physician - reducing the shortage in primary care physicians.
Through volunteer work helping individuals overcome physical and emotional impediments when speaking and being involved in several segments of health care, I realized two critical elements were missing from my career;
1. Directly augmenting the equality of life of another person.
2. Greater utilization of my innate skills to engage, empathize and assist others, increasing my self-value and happiness.
Thank you for making it possible for me to become a doctor, and helping reduce the shortage of primary care physicians in Canada.
