Einstein Graduate Vikram Padmanabhan Reflects on the Art of Medicine in Writing

Vikram Padmanabhan realized he was drawn to medicine as a way to practice science and physiology “with a human touch” when his students at Lehman High School in the Bronx came to him with health problems. After three years as a teacher, Padmanabhan decided to combine his love of science with a desire to keep “one foot in the real world” by pursuing an MD at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
