Why I love teaching:

I find immense joy and fulfillment in teaching medical students for several reasons. Firstly, the opportunity to impart knowledge and share my passion for medicine allows me to contribute to the development of future healthcare professionals. Witnessing their growth, curiosity, and dedication to learning is incredibly rewarding. Teaching also serves as a platform for me to stay abreast of the latest advancements in the field, fostering a continuous cycle of learning and professional development. Moreover, the exchange of ideas and perspectives with students keeps my enthusiasm for medicine alive and thriving. Ultimately, the prospect of positively influencing the next generation of healthcare practitioners and contributing to their success motivates and inspires me in my role as an educator.
