Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says future plastic surgeons should be prepared to fight their way to top. It’s a competitive industry. Get in a good school and then do well in a residency program. He says it’s all worth it because you get to be creative and use your skills to help people with various ailments.
Dr. Jejurikar went to the University of Michigan, which is one of the top 25 medical schools in the U.S. He completed his residency at Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital in Manhattan. There he specialized in aesthetic surgery. After that he worked internationally and participated in workshops and some volunteer work.
During His Free Time
When he is not consumed with plastic surgery work and meetings Dr. Jejurikar travels abroad to perform medical deed. Just in March he traveled with Smile Bangladesh to support a nonprofit and help them provide treatment for cleft lip deformations. When Dr. Jejurikar went on the trip he said it just emphasized why he’s so passionate about his work.
He says traveling to Bangladesh is a hard trip to take. When he goes he finds himself being thankful for all that he has in life. Trips like these keep him in check for the rest of the year. He has built such a relationship with the core members of the group and the organization. He says even if he travels with another group, they will not take the place of this one. He will always be a willing participant. Dr. Jejurikar is a very busy surgeon, but he feels that he’s doing what’s necessary to keep up. He wants to continue to be a successful plastic surgeon and he knows he needs to continue to practice your skills and grow. Always learning, always studying and always improving.
