The Duke Orthopaedic Journal


In this final year of residency, as I reflect on the last 4½ years here at Duke, several of my fondest memories are my experiences during the 7th Annual Parekh Indo-US Foot and Ankle Course in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. I initially applied for selection as the Parekh Family Foundation Resident Scholar due to my growing interest in the orthopaedic subspecialty of foot and ankle. I had no idea what a life-changing experience this trip to India would become. No India travel book adequately prepares one for the unique culture and camaraderie of the Indian people that I grew to fully appreciate by the end of even this short, four-night visit.
