In part 5 we present photographs by Pooja Vijayendra, a second-year osteopathic medical student from Cupertino, CA.

Of this photograph, which Pooja titled “Nothing can dim the light that shines from within,” she says, “As a medical student, it’s easy to get lost in the endless barrage of work and to lose a sense of purpose, so to speak. This photo was a reminder that I have a passion for medicine that I need to remember to let come through and drive my motivation.”

Pooja titled this photograph “We build too many walls and not enough bridges” because, as she explains: “To me, this is especially applicable in today’s tumultuous world. We have the power to make a meaningful impact as future physicians, but we must first learn to communicate and treat our patients with open minds.”
