I completed MBBS and MD from Institute of Medicine (IOM), Maharajgunj.
I studied Obstetrics as well as Gynaecology.
College is the temple of knowledge where I developed self-esteem, maturity and above all the responsibility of being a medical doctor.
BEST OF COLLEGE LIFE
Being in companionship for several years is the best of my college life and also the preparation during college life to be a professional after completion of college.
While doing my MBBS I visited several places like Parsa, Lahan, Makawanpur and India where I got to learn many things and visit new places. These tours were conducted as a part of our studies. And studies was the only thing I was involved in during my student days.
Being in college, I learnt to be mature, stable and tough while dealing with problems in life.
