My real name's Siddharth, I am a US resident NRI haha not NRAI (been here since May'99 after S.S.C. exams -10th grade board exams) I am hoping to get a decent score on the MCAT.
NRAI2001 said:Cool, i ll be taking the MCATs in august also. My name is Nirmeet and a student at UC berkeley. Lived in the US my whole life, have visited india a few times.
aah dude, I lived with my cousin for a year in Jackson, MI. His parents are doctors , he will be attending NYU med school this August. I just had to act silly first year, you know. My parents were in Middle East then, so I had to live with my parents the next year for 12th grade. It was fun studying at the The AMerican INTL. School of Muscat. My borther was in Northern KY as my other aunt lives there as well. That is how I got stuck here. But I am close of Cincinnati and get to watch South Park and be in a fraternity so life's goodNRAI2001 said:Why?
Well dude I cannot really thinkg of any major issues besides the high risk of coronay heart disease among us (not sure if it is due to our genetic disposition or diet)ragneel said:hi!
this forum had created not for quibbling over statistics, though it can be done some a time this is primarily 2 adress the issues or problems facing indian pre meds and meds. there is no denying the fact that that indians play a crucial role in american medicine.
we have our own unique set of problems and this we have 2 adress.
IMGforNeuro said:CAD in Indians is more due to genetic factors. I think we have a very balanced diet. If we compare it to american diet, our food is more healthy.
The excessive amount of cheese and fat is all over the news. No wonder Atkins made a lot of money.
Even one of my US born female cousins has High Cholestrol. She takes good care of herself. I guess genetic factors could be responsible in her case as well as yoursNRAI2001 said:I am in pretty good shape, played football and baseball in HS, 3 years ago, but I still try to workout atleast a few times a week. I don't look fat at all, I have a normal BP but I have high cholestrol. I alway thought it was attributed to all the oil and butter in indian diets.
its more because we indians r so much after our career before marriage and wife so much after us after marriage that we never get 2 take care of ourselves . did i forget 2 mention about money everywher between marriage and wife.
its not that we indians cant but its that we dont.
Adi frm India said:Hi!
This is Adi, a 3rd yr med student frm India.
Guys, is it true that indians who get through the usmle don't get competetive residencies like surg., paeds etc?
Also, heard that we r not given residencies in the good hosps.
I am deciding on whether to appear usmle/plab and am really confused.
MD Rapper said:How is everyone doing?
For the count...
I'm a 22 yo pre-med who just graduated from USC in southern california. I'm currently applying... I had a question for anyone who would like to respond...
As an Indian pre-med, it is often very difficult to maintain your own identity. What I mean is... I am automatically labeled as another "Indian doctor." But in reality, I have a lot of different motivations for selecting my career choice and I hate to be stereotyped as choosing something just because "I'm supposed to." Has anybody else overcome this... meaning.... what do u all do to maintain a unique identity aside from your career... lol.. maybe this is just an issue for the ABCDs!
Thanks everyone and hooray for this forum
