Prior to graduating as a doctor, I had had the opportunity of doing some humanitarian work during the 2010 flood in Punjab. That opened a portal that remained ajar throughout my time as a house officer, a junior lecturer and a masters student.
I learned about MSF and its work during my time as a master's student at Karolinska Institutet. Working in Bajaur brought together the idea of working as a clinician and humanitarian in a remote area of Pakistan.
So far so good!
