Nirmala Bhoo Pathy: Young minds push me to revisit my medical school basics

Nirmala Bhoo Pathy shared a post on LinkedIn:  .

“A shot for memories with my stage 2 medical students in University of Malaya after our last PBL session for the Renal and Urology Block. After years of focusing on cancer, oncology, epidemiology, and public health, these young minds push me to revisit my medical school basics—anatomy, histology, physiology, biochemistry, pathology,…

Stepping out of my comfort zone with them has definitely been a rewarding experience. I hope I’ve done good for them because they’ve certainly done good for me. During our classes, I always advise them to live a balanced life with happiness as a central theme. I hope that these thoughts stay in their minds even if I don’t. Wishing them all the best and many blessings in their medical journey and life in general.”
