As I finished my high school, I was very curious about what’s coming next ! Which career path should I follow. I had seen my friends and family studying day and night and working hard to get into medical schools. The amount of effort and time they spent for entrance exams for medical school, kind of discouraged me . I definitely wanted to pursue a career in health care and I was actively researching for a nursing career. However, as I continued my research ,I came across physiotherapy. This was a relatively new profession in south Asia 20 yrs ago. I attended a career fair hoping to get an admission in nursing school . However , during my counselling ,I was informed that “ there are no physiotherapists in the country at this time and you could be the very one to begin with this profession”. I had no idea what physiotherapy was back then.I was informed that physiotherapy is a treatment method that helps people with pain and mobility. As I heard this from the counsellor I decided to enroll for a physiotherapy programme .
Today as I look back , I am glad that it was the best decision I made in my professional career. It has helped me love and serve my community . Being a physiotherapist for more than a decade now and providing care and services to my patients has been very fulfilling.
Helping my patient and practicing values like compassion and patient support has been a very joyful experience . ‘love all and serve all’ are the values I am driven by and my constant effort is to lead all my patients to health and independence .
