MY ALMA MATER (S)
I completed MBBS in 1999 and Master of Surgery in 2004 from Beijing Medical University, Beijing, China.
I studied Surgical Oncology.
It was the period of transformation, freedom, as well as a time to experience pressure for career.
BEST OF COLLEGE LIFE
Hanging out with friends was the best of my college life.
I had a good friend who committed suicide, and it disturbed not only me but the entire class. The sad incident taught me how to go forward in life.
Do what you want but don’t mess up your studies.
WORDS TO HEED
Time has changed a lot and it’s much more difficult for today’s generation where they have to face tough competition to achieve something. However, during the student life one should focus on studies and career first.
HOW TO ACE IN COLLEGE
Have routine in life. Never live for tomorrow. Most importantly manage your time and know when to do what and how.
