Dr. Hector Grajeda was frustrated with the inability to obtain medical residency in a mainland American hospital after graduating from medical school in Mexico. His opportunity came from a Puerto Rico Hospital that he’s never heard about.
This Episode Summary
Encouraged by his wife, he left behind his general practice to pursue specialized education in the United States. Though his college credits from Mexico were accepted in the United States, he was still required to take the United States Medical Licensing Examination. After months of study, he was permitted to pursue medical residency.
Mistakes, miscommunication, fires, and other mishaps have made for a bumpy journey, but Dr. Grajeda’s faith and love for his family has kept him going. He has also found himself in a different place than he expected, so he encourages others to be open to any opportunity.
Dr. Grajeda says the journey has been long, hard, difficult and expensive, but it has been worth it.
