A 5th year medical student at Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poznan, Poland. Rahul Pawate, who goes by Yash, was born in India, moved to the United States when he was 7 years old. He completed his primary and secondary education in the Dallas metroplex area. Growing up, Yash was known as the “weather-man” of the community and would track various weather patterns especially tornadoes, and hurricanes. His ambition was to become a meteorologist! As he entered 9th grade, his got introduced to the world of the amazing machine – the human body. His interest motivated him to take several advanced courses in the field of human science which cemented his interest in pursuing a career in healthcare. Yash graduated, from high school, in 2018 with honors and started medical school at Poznan Institute of Medical Science (PUMS) in Poland, the same year. Poland was literally another world – everything was different – place, people, weather, culture, language, and curriculum. This change, at times was over-whelming to the point of asking himself ‘can I survive medical school ?’. To everyone’s surprise he ended up exceeding all expectations when he passed year 1 of med school and went on to being one of the top students in year 1 to 3 and being awarded for academic excellence for year 4. During his time in medical school, Yash has been tutoring various student, and involved in multiple clubs- American Medical Student Association (AMSA) Vice President PUMS Int’l Chapter, Chief of Tutoring, Oncology, Badminton, and Endocrinology. His passion for healthcare continued when he started getting hands-on-clinical experience with his local primary care physician in Dallas, Texas. Shadowing at first, Yash was hesitant, anxious, overwhelmed, and even doubted whether this was the right profession for him. As time went on, and interacting with over 700 patients within the span of 4 years, he has boosted his knowledge, confidence, and has shown great dedication towards his professional duties. Yash is currently studying for his USMLE Step 2 and will be applying for the 2024 match cycle in Internal Medicine.
