I remember reaching out to you via email in March this year (2023) after I matched into residency and was anxious a about how I will be able to publish giving my almost little to background in research. You encouraged me and gave me a few pointers. Fast forward just submitted my first abstract to DDW...working on projects using NIS Database, and learning Meta Analysis. We all need someone like Dr Babu Mohan to point us in the right direction.”

- Raymond Wadie

Thank you for this initiative.”

- Kailash Kolhe

Under his guidance, I managed to complete an entire meta-analysis on my own after discovering Dr Mohan's forest plot website that breaks down this daunting topic into simple chunks. Looking forward to furthering my skills in the coming months!

At current rate, I am talking to 2 - 4 new person each month, from across the globe, for hours, about how to publish, meta-analysis, green-card, and GI fellowship.

Although its tiring to talk the same stuff for hours each time, I guess I like it as I am passionate about sharing, teaching, connecting, & learning.

Above all, considering how much help I had for myself back in 2015 (literally none), it's soul satisfying to just ... help.

To help.. is the motto of this website (and ... ya, I heard you.. of course to avoid repetition and save some personal time & energy.. lol).
