Dear AKMG Family,
I am humbled and honored to serve as the chair of Young AKMG this year. I’ve had the privilege of meeting and working with many of you through the convention last year and the virtual meetings. This year I hope to bring the same enthusiasm and enterprising spirit to achieve more in our medical field while uniting our Keralite physician community across the Indian diaspora.
Congratulations to our Young AKMG members who secured PGY-1 U.S. residency seats this match! Your success is well deserved, and your hard work has paid off. This is also a testament to Dr. Subramanya Bhat, Dr. Rojymon Jacob, Dr. Deepu Sudhakaran, and Dr. Neena Thomas, Dr. Madhu Vennikandam, and other AKMG members who mentored all of us through this process. Your kindness and generosity is not lost on us. We hope to do you all proud in our future endeavors while upholding and growing the legacy of the Keralite doctors who paved the way for us here in the U.S.
If you are a medical student, resident, or fellow of Keralite origin pursuing medicine in North America, please see below how you can get involved. All practicing and retired AKMG physicians are welcome to help as well. Your support in helping us grow and succeed is invaluable!
I’m truly excited to introduce our Young AKMG committee for 2022-2023.
