Aditi Giri, MD
Medical Officer, Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences, Nepal
My name is Dr. Aditi Giri and I am a physician from the Himalayan country of Nepal. I joined a community based and oriented medical school in 2005 and by the time I graduated in 2010, I felt like a part of the small villages our hospital served. Since then, I have worked as a medical officer at the community hospital and have lived in these villages during frequent community postings. The dire situation of health in rural Nepal continues to alarm me and I have now dedicated all my efforts to help improve it. My aim now is to go through a residency program in the US so that I may go back to my country and make substantial contribution to rural health, like some Nepali doctors before me.
