Internal Medicine Graduating Class of 2025
Where are you from originally?
Nobel Medical College, Nepal
When did you move to the U.S.?
Our family moved to the United States of America through the DV (Diversity Visa) lottery back in 2006. I had a supportive family to let me pursue my medical degree in Nepal. I finally came back to the U.S. after completing medical school. I moved to Michigan in order to pursue my residency training at Hurley Medical Center, which has been ranked the #1 smart hospital in Michigan state.
Why did you choose your specialty?
I love interacting with people, and want to take care of adult patients with various pathologies from admission to discharge. I also love diagnostic workups. Internal Medicine is the specialty that allows me to take care of sick patients and be on their care team.
I am a family-oriented person. I love having my family members around. I live with my father (Govinda Bahadur Karki), mother (Rukmini Karki), wife (Samjhana Belbase) and our daughter (Kiana Karki, born in 2022).
When you're not working, what do you do for fun?
I love visiting new places, cooking Nepali/Indian dishes, and watching suspense/thriller movies.
What do you like about Hurley?
Hurley has a great EMR system. Human resources and program leaderships are approachable when needed. The patient population and residents are well diversified.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by the challenges and deadlines. It keeps me motivated to learn more.
Go with the flow.
Success and failure are a part of life. We need to work hard and move forward to tackle the challenges. This quotation motivates me in every situation of my life.
