ARJUN S. KANWAL, M.D.

Class of 2018

 

Internal Medicine Residency

MedStar Baltimore in Maryland

 

For as long as he can remember, UMHS 2018 graduate Dr. Arjun S. Kanwal always wanted to become a doctor. “I never had a ‘moment’ where I decided ‘Hey, I think I want to be a doctor.’ It was more of an organic thought from the time I was old enough to remember thoughts,” he said.

 

Dr. Kanwal, a native of Potomac, Maryland, received his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from the University of Maryland. He decided to go the Caribbean route for medical school. He admits that, when he interviewed at UMHS, he did not know what to expect.

 

“At the interview, I was swayed,” he said. “I ended up talking to Ryan Ross [longtime UMHS admissions representative and Director of Marketing] for two hours about everything from University of Maryland–we both went there–to UMHS. I figured if someone high up has the time to talk to a prospective student for hours on end, the school must care about taking the time to get to know each student. My main concern about the Caribbean was the huge class sizes and high weed-out rates. My talk with Ryan helped to combat that concern.”

“THE FACULTY IN ST. KITTS ARE AMONG THE BEST PROFESSORS I’VE EVER HAD AND I DON’T THINK I WOULD BE WHERE I AM WITHOUT THEM. THEY REALLY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE SURE WE LEARNED THE MATERIAL FOR STEP 1.”
