“How did a bright and an academically avid female fight?” This is a synopsis by Dr. Shikha Tandon, a 37 year old ER Physician from India. Having received her under-graduate training from Punjab, she continued to clear the USMLE exams with an ECFMG certification soon after her internship. Being unable to take her US dreams forward, she underwent a 3 year residency training program at New Delhi in Emergency Medicine followed by the membership exams from royal college of emergency medicine, UK. She is currently working in Punjab in Fortis group of hospitals. Her areas of interest are teaching upcoming ER residents, paediatric emergencies and working in peripheries where EM is an unknown novice specialty. She enjoys company of little kids and is an adventure hodophile.
