Discipline and punctuality are a priority for the Indian future doctor

Discipline and punctuality are a priority for the Indian future doctor

Falak Ansari is a sixth course student of the Faculty of General Medicine at Yerevan State Medical University after Mkhitar Heratsi. Upon her graduation she wishes to study Gynecology and specialize in women’s reproductive health.

The 24-year-old future doctor was born and raised in Ambikapur, Chattisgarh, India.

“Throughout my schooling years I was into a bunch of co-curricular activities like calligraphy and folk dances (bharatnatyam).  4th grade onwards I was awarded each year from National Cadet Corps till 12th grade but then I had to focus on higher studies so I discontinued it”, she tells.

From childhood Falak was fascinated by the profession and the discipline of a doctor. “The work ethic and effort these noblemen would put behind their patients was something I idolized to follow through when I grew old. Now in a traditional sense a student who chooses medicine for their higher studies, is considered a full-on book worm, but I ran 200m track and won multiple awards in state level divisions. if that wasn’t enough, I have competed in long jump as well, to mention a few of the athletic disciplines I was fond of and have followed through”, Falak says.

While she was picking a university outside of India, YSMU was her first choice because of its rank amongst other renowned medical schools in the world. “The education system in this university, the care and attention teachers attend their students with is unparalleled to any educational institution for higher studies I have ever heard of. All the alumnus from this university, I had the opportunity to talk to, shared nothing but beautifully cherished memories, rushing through the corridors of dean’s building to the golden day of their graduation from the university. Truly reflecting back on my sophomore years, I can say it with true love and a deep admiration, in no time I found Yerevan to be my second home away from the true one”, Falak adds.

Yerevan, according to her, has proved itself to be the safest city for women. “That was one of my biggest concerns while picking a country to study in outside the comfort and safety of my hometown. The warmth with which Armenian people welcome tourists and students to their country is truly heartwarming”, she adds.

For someone who considers to follow this life – this discipline of medicine, Falak advices to be calm and patient at all times. “Being punctual and respectful goes a long way in this profession”, she concludes.
