Hello. It has been quite sometime since I posted anything on this blog. For that matter, it has been
some time since any of us has posted anything on this blog! Well, life has been fast for the past one month. Busy with visa work, writing my book. And the internet here is quite slow. So, it makes it difficult to make videos and upload them!!

Still, as promised I have come with my video answering your questions. In this first episode I have answered 5 of your questions.


I have picked 5 of our readers questions ranging from Observerships, Timeline for the 2014 match, How to improve your CV and the importance of US clinical experience.

My apologies for the poor video quality. I need to get a better webcam pretty soon ;)

Hope this helps not only those who asked the questions but also those who had similar questions.

Do keep your question coming in either on our email  or the ASK A QUESTION form on this website. Our next episode will be hopefully out by next week!!
