Hi. My name is Madiha Makhdumi. I'm originally from Karachi, Pakistan, having graduated from Delhi, University of Health Sciences. And I have my masters in public health from University of Arizona. I am an aspiring future pathologist, and for that purpose I came to CorePath Labs to explore the clinical side of pathology. And I think it was one of the best decisions of my life because I got to see so much over here from FISH to molecular genetics, cyto and histology.
And my interaction with the pathologists has been wonderful here. Everybody is so warm and friendly. And one thing I noted about CorePath is that everybody takes a genuine interest in you and wants to educate you and shape you to the best of their abilities. I think CorePath is a wonderful place where you can explore your identity if you aspire to be a future pathologist.
They are genuinely helpful. People here... They have an open door policy. They are such warm, friendly people with a great learning atmosphere. And my suggestion to the future interns who plan to come here for their internship is that, you know, come here with an open mind, with a receptive mindset, and be as interactive as you can be. So that you can gain maximum benefit from your time spent over here, because it is a truly wonderful place to learn.
Hi, everyone. My name is Huda Haq I'm from Rochester, Minnesota, where I work at Mayo Clinic, but I'm originally from Pakistan, where I did my med school from King Edward Medical University. I'm an aspiring pathologist who would be applying for a pathology residency this upcoming cycle. And of course, in order to do that, I was looking for observation rotation opportunities where I would I came across this wonderful opportunity being offered to me by Dr. Ehsan to rotate here in CorePath in San Antonio.
And I would say that it probably was the best decision that I have made for myself so far because coming here I realized that everyone is so friendly, welcoming here. They're always ready to make you learn new things. They're ready to teach you. They're here to help you guide you, especially all the technicians and pathologists. They're there to answer your questions.
I found them very friendly, very welcoming. Other than that, we got to learn so much in terms of flow cytometry, cytogenetics, FISH and histology. Another aspect that I found very interesting with this rotation was the molecular studies being performed here at the lab, and we got hands on experience on those, especially the next generation sequencing that I'm personally very interested in going forward in my career.
And that's also going to be a breakthrough in the field of pathology. So that was a very interesting thing for me to learn about. Overall. This has been a wonderful experience being here at CorePath with all the CorePath team. I would highly recommend to all the students and future pathology residency applicants to come here to CorePath for greater learning.
I would once again take an opportunity to thank Dr. Ehsan and the whole team for giving us this opportunity to be here and to learn from you guys. Thank you, Dr. Ehsan for being such a wonderful teacher and mentor, and I am looking forward to remaining connected with the CorePath team in the future as well. Thank you.
