Why is participating in a mission like this important to you? People have different ways of giving back to the community, either locally or globally. Some people donate to charities. Others donate their time through volunteerism. But for me, I want to give back by sharing the skills that I have obtained through residency and medical school.
IEP is especially important to me as we all have to work as a team regardless of our roles. No amount of hubris can treat our patients, who have extremely complicated deformities. If anything, this mission demands humility as we need to understand our patients’ needs in order to provide them with the best care.
How has participating in missions with IEP affected your life/world view?
