Personal Statement

As a neonatologist, I treat premature and term infants and their very unique pathologies, understanding that our ultimate aim is to ensure not just survival but intact survival with excellent neurodevelopmental outcomes. My career has taken me across two continents and various clinical settings in pediatrics and neonatology, including high-volume tertiary care centers in India. This provided me with invaluable “in the trenches” experience in neonatal care and resuscitation and shaped my interest in this subject. My current position as an academic neonatologist at Weill Cornell fulfills my career goals to treat, teach as well as carry out meaningful research. Having an infant in the neonatal intensive care unit can be very stressful. I consider it a privilege to be able to not just provide medical care to the babies but also to support their families as they navigate their infant’s hospital stay.
