A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DR. NEZERWA
I was born in Rwanda, a small beautiful country located in eastern Africa. I was privileged to live in many different countries in my childhood. At an early age, I was exposed to a great diversity of people from different counties and cultures. My family and I moved to the United States in Dallas 2007 and has been my home ever since.
I was drawn to UTMB for medical school and residency because of the diversity in the student population, great faculty and excellent learning facilities. During medical school, I was part of the global health tract at UTMB. I was privileged to travel to rural Uganda and Peru as part of my global health experience. I wanted to gain more experience in medicine in a rural and a limited resource setting. This experience I had interacting with people was very influential in my descension to pursue my career in primary care.
I chose family medicine because it encompasses every aspect of primary care and because it aligns well with my personality and future goals. I look forward to working with underserved communities, the dream I had since my childhood.
My hobbies outside medicine include photography, playing online chess, working with my hands as hobby mechanic.
