I am a 24-year-old medical student at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. I am currently attending my 6th and final year.
During these long and engaging 6 years I came across a huge quantity of medical fields and situations: from nephrology to pediatrics, from emergency medicine to general surgery. I enjoyed them all, but last year I began an internship in our neurology department. Well, that internship hasn't ended yet! I found out that neurology holds my interest the way nothing else has.
So, besides my medical student career (with daily lectures, exams and rotations) I everyday run to the neurology department, trying to learn as much as possible, both from my mentor (Prof M. Inghilleri) and from my patients. I am indeed attending the neuromuscular diseases division where we take care of patients with complex and cruel pathologies. These patients' strength and the way they appreciate the smallest things in our lives, wonders me everyday!
