We continue our campaign to #EndNeurophobia by tackling this neurology clinical unknown, with the guidance of Aaron Berkowitz.
Maria Jimena Aleman
Maria Jimena Aleman was born and raised in Guatemala where she currently is a medical student in Universidad Francisco Marroquin. After suffering from long standing neurophobia, she has embraced her love for neurology and will pursue a career in this field. She also looks forward to dedicating her life to breaking barriers for Latin women in medical fields and improving medical care in her country. Maria is one of the creators of a medical education podcast in Spanish called Intratecal. Her life probably has a soundtrack of a mix between Shakira and Louis Armstrong. Outside of medicine she enjoys modern art, 21st century literature and having hour long conversations over a nice hot cup of coffee or tequila.
Mohamed is a senior medical student at Alfaisal University in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. He was born in Egypt before he moved with his family to Saudi. Mohamed is interested in adult neurology; his neurophilia started in one morning report during his neuroscience rotation when he could feel his heart racing and his brain twisting thinking about the cases. He plans to apply to neurology residency next year. In his free time, Mohamed enjoys baking, and cooking; he also likes playing the piano (level: very amateur).
Kannu is a junior resident at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India working in the Kidney Transplant Wing. Despite my current affiliation with transplantation, I love to explore everything related to medicine. My passions include quizzing, teaching, and learning, and that’s how I came to know about CPSolvers. I plan to pursue Internal Medicine Residency in United States. Outside of medicine, I like to watch soccer, Formula 1, and sketch pencil portraits.
