Dr. Ashraf on “Why I Love ID”
“I love the sense of satisfaction that practicing in the field of infectious diseases provides to me. This is a specialty where we are able to prevent and/or cure most of the diseases. In my opinion, investigating a case of infectious disease like a detective, looking at all possible scenarios and using available evidence to find out the real cause of the disease and then being able to cure it is the most satisfying experience any physician can ever get. Similarly, applying the knowledge of infectious diseases to prevent an infection from spreading from one person to another or around the globe is an equally satisfying experience to me. I can be part of all of that because I chose to be an infectious diseases physician.”
