“I feel like my whole life has been leading up to this moment,” said Madhura Manjunath. She just began the internal medicine residency program at Berkshire Medical Center in Massachusetts.

Recounting how she arrived at this point in her life, Manjunath recalled that a deciding factor in her enrolling at Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) was her interview with Erin Healey, associate director of Admissions at RUSM. “I met with Erin and she was so nice,” said Manjunath. “My interview with Erin was my first experience with Ross and I loved it.”

“I had a great time going through the different [clinical] rotations. I really enjoyed my clinical years,” said Manjunath. “I advise students to take advantage of every opportunity they get. Ross has a lot to offer.”

One of the opportunities Manjunath had was working alongside Vijay Rajput, MD, who is the medical director of RUSM’s Office of Student Professional Development. According to Manjunath, “there is so much to do if you reach out and make different connections with people.”

Manjunath’s long-term plan is to develop a career in pulmonary critical care. After completing clinical training at a critical care unit at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, Manjunath realized she “loved the experience.”
